There’s an old axiom about investing that says always remember to buy low and sell high.

It’s a long (and self-evident) view toward acquiring wealth that would be foolish to deny. Indeed, during an Athenaeum luncheon on April 21 entitled A Conversation on Investing, guest speakers (both investment heavy hitters), George Roberts ’66 P’93 and Britt Harris, agreed but with a slight twist. In Roberts and Harris’ view, it’s better for individual investors to buy low and then wait, wait, wait and then wait some more before selling, maybe.

Robert Day Scholars case competition winners

Fourteen CMC student teams competed in the 6th Annual Robert Day School (RDS) Case Competition on April 4.

This year’s winning team which won a cash prize of $5000, consisted of Alexandra Arnett ’16, Jeffrey Hochhauser ’15, Sara Linssen ’16, and Ben Turner ’16. Together, these students evaluated a case entitled “Centurion Media: Doing the Right Thing.”

The In-Lend Fund has four field teams that work with clients to provide them with financial consulting, credit-building assistance, and help in securing Kiva-Zip loans.

It’s not often that student groups come to the aid of business interests. Usually, it’s the other way around. But sometimes turnabout is fair play, especially when everyone benefits.

Hiram Chodosh speaking with Jared Cohen and Eric Schmidt

On March 5, 2014, Claremont McKenna College President Hiram Chodosh sat down with Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, and Jared Cohen, head of Google Ideas. The two Google executives co-wrote The New Digital Age: Transforming Nations, Business and Our Lives (2014), which addresses questions about how technology will change privacy, security, war, intervention, diplomacy, revolution, and terrorism. In this book, Cohen and Schmidt argue that technology gives hope for a future of promise and innovation.
