Boston College 'Goes Long' the Stock Market

The club's overall strategy, according to a recent student presentation, is "to combine top-down economic analysis with bottom-up stock selection. The top-down approach identifies countries, sectors and industries that may benefit from observed micro and macro trends. We will then look for individual companies with earnings growth potential that may not be recognized by the market at large, using a bottom-up stock selection process."

The portfolio currently holds 41 securities , many of which have been held for 10 years or more. Some examples, with their original purchase dates and share prices, include:

  • Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report): Dec. 6, 1994, at $4.61
  • General Electric (GE - Get Report): Nov. 5, 1997 at $23.17
  • Caterpillar (CAT - Get Report): Feb. 14, 1995 at $13.31

A few of the stocks the club bought in 2006, include:
