The Freeman School of Business will present the 26th Annual Burkenroad Reports Investment Conference on Friday, April 28, 2023, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans.

The annual event gives institutional and individual investors an opportunity to hear presentations by top executives from small- to mid-cap public companies headquartered across the Gulf South. This year’s conference will include speakers from industries including banking, construction, manufacturing, security and transportation, among others. Howard Marks, co-founder and co-chairman of Oaktree Capital Management and an influential American investor, will deliver the keynote address.

“This is an opportunity for institutional and individual investors to hear from the people running companies that are under-followed by Wall Street,” said Peter Ricchiuti, the founder and director of the Burkenroad Reports. “There’s often great value here, which is why we sometimes refer to them as ‘Stocks under Rocks.’”

The conference is an outgrowth of Burkenroad Reports, a student stock analysis program at Tulane’s Freeman School of Business. Each year, 200 finance students working in teams meet with top management and visit company sites to prepare and publish objective investment research reports on 40 small-cap public companies headquartered in six southern states. The completed reports are available at the conference and on the Freeman School web site.

Companies whose representatives will speak at this year’s conference include: Amerisafe Inc. (AMSF), Bristow Group (VTOL), Cal-Maine Foods Inc. (CALM), Construction Partners (ROAD), Crown Crafts Inc. (CRWS), EastGroup Properties (EGP), First Guaranty Bancshares (FGBI), Haverty Furniture Companies (HVT), Marine Products Corp. (MPX), Pool Corporation (POOL), Potbelly Sandwich Works (PBPB), Powell Industries (POWL), RPC Inc. (RES), Sunnova Energy International (NOVA) and Vistra Corp. (VST).
