While some of the talk will be more geared towards sports marketing, I know he has also worked on investor presentations, financing, and acquisitions so finance will be well represented.
Jim is a 2004 MBA (you may know him as "Kentucky").

have a good week!
Thursday, May 5th and Sunday, May 8th are designated “Reading” (or “non-exam”) Days. No undergraduate exams, classes, or other mandatory activities are to take place on these days (optional review sessions are fine).
I know that you will be considerate of our students’ needs if they come to you with legitimate exam conflicts, particularly if the conflict was caused by a change in the time of your exam (including, but not limited to, it being scheduled at a “special” final exam time). It is our long-standing practice that students should not have to take more than two final exams in a given day. I hope that you will be understanding if a student comes to you with such a situation and asks for relief from having three exams in a day.
Final grades for degree candidates (undergraduate and graduate) are due to be submitted not later than 10:00 AM on Thursday, May 12th. Final grades for all other students (undergraduate and graduate) are due to be submitted not later than 10 AM on Monday, May 16th. It is imperative that we comply with these deadlines.
An Incomplete Grade Record form must be submitted to the Registrar’s office for each student for whom an “I” grade is submitted. Janet and Barb have copies of this form, if you need them. Please note, also, that the “I” grades must be made up before the beginning of the third week prior to the end of the following academic semester. The use of an “IP” grade is not a substitute for an “I” grade. The “IP” grade is reserved for research and other situations where the course work is planned to extend for more than one semester (e.g., a scheduled 2-semester course)."

submit multiple choice problems (must have a through e as potential answers with correct answer marked and a quick explanation given).
If your problem is selected for the test, you
- Get it right--or at least hopefully get it right ;)
- Get 2 points added to your test.
You can submit as many questions as you want. (never cap an incentive based package :) )

It is too short for a FinanceProfessorblog entry, but given we just were talking about conditions for market efficiency this weekend,I figured I could put it here.
From an upcoming JFQA (Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis).
"Short Sale Constraints, Differences of Opinion, and Overvaluation
Rodney D. Boehme, Bartley R. Danielsen, and Sorin M. Sorescu
Miller (1977) hypothesizes that dispersion of investor opinion in the presence of short-sale constraints leads to stock price overvaluation. However, previous empirical tests of Miller’s hypothesis have examined the valuation effects of only one of these two necessary conditions. We examine the valuation effects of the interaction between differences of opinion and short sale constraints. We find robust evidence of significant overvaluation for stocks that are subject to both conditions simultaneously. Stocks are not systematically overvalued when either one of these two conditions is not met."

The final for the Monday class is Monday May 9th. The final for the Thursday class is TUESDAY May 10th.
Both tests are at normal class time.
The Hilbert final is the last Saturday starting at noon.
From this also come up with the theoretical price for puts.
Once this is done, graph the various "greeks" (that is how the call price changes with the various variables.)
