The Retail Investors Affinity Group (WRIG) invites you to an exciting and informative discussion with Wharton Professor Marius Guenzel.

Professor Guenzel will talk with us about:
  • Attention, stock picking, and effects on stock prices
  • Reference points, gain-loss thinking, and effects on trading
  • Behavioral corporate finance and sunk cost effects in firm decision-making
  • Corporate repairs and how to curb adverse effects of managerial biases
Following Professor Guenzel’s talk, there will be a Q&A session.
