2014–'15 All-America Student Analyst Competition: Long Alpha

< Student Analysts Win Big on Oil and Gas Plays Long AlphaLan Nguyen of Loyola University Chicago finishes in ninth place overall but is No. 1 in terms of long alpha, beating the Russell 3000 by 97 basis points. That's more than double the outperformance of the student who claims second place on this roster, Ayushia Ansari of Stetson University.Among students whose portfolios beat the Russell 3000 over the contest period, those who shorted stocks enjoyed far greater outperformance than those who did not. Shorting had a more modest impact on the portfolios that lagged the benchmark.
