36th Annual Institutional Investors Conference
March 1 - 4, 2015
The Raymond James Institutional Investors Conference - one of the largest, most broadly focused, and enduring conferences of its kind - provides an annual forum for portfolio managers and generalists to learn about sound investment opportunities from a wide range of companies across the nine industries covered by Raymond James:
Our 2014 conference attracted approximately 1,900 attendees, including representatives from more than 325 institutional investment management firms across North America and Europe, as well as key industry leaders and members of the media.
For 2015 we anticipate an even more dynamic event as the success and reputation of our conference continue to grow. The three-day schedule features presentations by the senior management teams of approximately 300 companies, and should provide conference attendees ample opportunity to gain deep investment insight into both these presenting companies and the industry sectors in which they operate.
Raymond James Lumber Super-Cycle Forum
January 15, 2015 - Toronto, Ontario
With carnage elsewhere in the Canadian resource complex, the average ~25% 2014 return (vs. the TSX which is up only 3%) in lumber producer shares has been a welcomed oasis for materials investors. With commodity and capital cycle tailwinds, we have conviction that stocks will continue to perform well and new investors will be handsomely rewarded. For the 5th annual Raymond James Lumber Super-Cycle Forum, we have organized a concise program to explore the key investment factors:
A company management and institutional clients standing dinner reception will kick off the event on January 14, 2015.

Raymond James Lumber Super Cycle Forum IV
January 16, 2014 â€“ Toronto, Ontario
Raymond James first published the seminal research report "Peak Lumber: A Super-Cycle Looms" back in March 2010; since then a simple average of lumber stocks in our coverage universe have returned over 260%. Lumber prices once again topped expectations in 2013 putting in a strong showing despite US housing activity levels running well below trend, and despite many stocks recently hitting all-time highs, we remain unwaveringly bullish on the outlook and maintain that we are in the early stages of a secular lumber rally. With this backdrop, investors once again attended our lumber forum where industry experts shared their near and long-term market outlooks. Raymond James & Associates Housing & REIT analyst Buck Horne shared his insights into the near and long-term US housing outlook, and a Lumber Outlook Panel with representatives from Conifex Timber, International Forest Products, Millar Western, and West Fraser Timber was featured. Other speakers included: timber expert Rocky Goodnow from Forest Economic Advisors and Chief Forester and Assistant Deputy Minister Dave Peterson from the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
