New York, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
In this era of prolonged economic downturn, with insightful market information at a premium, the Ira W. Sohn Research Conference Foundation today announced the speakers for the 14th Annual Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference to be held on May 27, 2009, from 2:30 to 6:30 PM at New York City's Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference is the first of its kind to give premier investors a stage for explaining their best investment strategies and ideas. Past conferences have been host to some of the most innovative investment advice to be released in a public forum, resulting in immediate market impact and long-term returns. Stock picks and market insights shared by previous conference speakers have proved extremely profitable for attendees. Several presentations at last year's event offered crucial analysis, including David Einhorn's comprehensive review of Lehman Brothers that foretold the company's fate and Michael Price's sobering thoughts on Wachovia.
"We always deliver fresh perspectives on the market," said Daniel Nir, Co-Chair of the Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference and Managing Partner of Gracie Capital. "Now more than ever is the time for a conference with a track record of producing the kind of results our conference provides." Conference Co-Chair Douglas Hirsch, Managing Partner of Seneca Capital, added, "Investors come to this event every year hoping to get several good ideas and one great idea - they have yet to be disappointed."
This year's Sohn Conference will feature several returning star speakers as well as many new and important voices. The speaker lineup for the 14th Annual Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference is:

About the Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference
The Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference was founded in 1995 after the untimely passing of Ira Sohn. Sohn was a successful trader on Wall Street who battled cancer and passed away at the age of 29. His courageous battle with cancer inspired his colleagues and friends to launch the annual Ira W. Sohn Investment Research Conference.
Proceeds from the conference are donated to organizations dedicated to the care and treatment of children with pediatric cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. The organizations served include Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Tomorrows Children's Fund at Hackensack University Medical Center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and ArtWorks, an art therapy program that allows children fighting diseases to express themselves through art.
