My Stock Market Portfolio consists of three public companies that I thought would make me a profit. They are eBay, Walmart, and Walt Disney. I picked eBay because lots of people like eBay and I think eBay is really cool so I wanted to see if eBay was doing well and how they were doing over time. I also picked it to see if I should ever actually invest in eBay. I also Picked Walmart for one big reason. I don't like Walmart and I never have. So I wanted to see how they were doing and it was a last minute exchange for Pier 1 but now I wish I picked Pier 1. I picked Walt Disney just randomly. I really don't know why I picked it I just did. Those are the stocks that I picked from the stock market.
Now that I've sold my stocks I wish that I kept Pier 1 instead of Walmart. Pier 1 did a lot better than Walmart and they have been making money. Walmart hasn't and I lost $100 or more from Walmart. I also wish that I could change eBay into apple, because apple has been doing so well. Especially with the new iPad now I wish I did Apple. Their stocks went up about $200 since we started the stock market project. I wouldn't change Walt Disney because they have been doing so well. I've made a lot of money from them. Only to lose part of it because of Waltmart. Walt Disney basicly kept me in the Black instead of the red. Now I wish I switched stocks so that I could of made more of a profit. Even though its not really money.
I have some advice for people next year who are going to do the stocks. You definetly need to reseach a lot before you finally pick your stocks. Don't just pick stocks because your friends did. You should research how they have been doing before you pick them. Some good stocks are google, apple, and pennie stocks are always good. They tend to go up and when they do if you have enough you will make a lot of money off of them. So research a lot before you pick the stocks. Maybe go on google and see what will make you money.
