The Pittsburgh Pharmacy Investment Portfolio (PPIP) wrapped up its Biotech Investment Fantasy League (BIFL) competition at its annual Portfolio Presentations Event held via Zoom on December 2, 2020. BIFL is an organization-wide competition that allows members to build their own fantasy portfolio on a stock stimulator program, Investopedia, and compete for the highest-earning portfolio. By market close on October 9th, 2020, all participants were required to have 50% of their $50,000 allowance invested in healthcare, biotechnology, or pharmaceutical stocks. The competition ran through December 1st, 2020. The 10 top-earning portfolios were invited to present their portfolio selections and investment strategies to a panel of faculty judges. Winners were decided based on the rationale of investments, rather than the financial outcome.
Congratulations to first place winner Matthew Roth, second place winner Hyunwoo Kim, and third place winner Christopher Biser.
