Stock Market Report
I selected Microsoft, Wal-Mart and Coca-Cola for my stock portfolio because they are all apart of my daily life and I had a feeling they would end up in the black and be a profit. I bought Microsoft because I wanted to buy a tech stock and everybody was buying Apple so I bought Microsoft so I could be different. Wal-Mart was one of my stocks because I like those stores that have like everything and what is better than Wal-Mart. I love Coca-Cola and it is my favorite soda and that is why I bought it.
My stock was losing and in the red so I would of made some minor changes to my portfolio. When your stocks are losing money another name for it is being in the bear market. I would of added more stocks into Microsoft because it was my only stock in the black. I would of deleted Coca-Cola out of my portfolio because it lost me the most money. With my shares in Wal-Mart I would not of bought as many stocks as I did. I bought 92 shares of Wal-Mart, instead I would of equaled it out.
For any future brokers I would recommend them to have their stock portfolio consist of at least one tech stock. There is always a couple of them always rising in the black. Before you buy shares of a stock I would research if they have been doing good over the year and if new products are coming out. When you are looking at your portfolio in the middle of your term if you see that there have been a high rise in price and other stocks in your industry are starting to fall it might be a good time to sell and be happy to be in the black and gaining money.
