NHKÆ's Surprising Stocks
For my math stock market project in math class, I chose Apple, TJ Max, and Ebay. We had to follow our stocks for 24 weeks. I picked Apple (APPL) because my dad invested in that company for real and because Apple seems like they are very popular and always comes up with new technology and new products involving touch screens. I picked Ebay because I always check the website for items I would like to have and it seems like it is a very popular site, but it not do very well. I also chose TJ Max because I had know idea what else to pick so I went with one of the stocks that the teacher bought.
I would have changed a lot of my portfolio now that I have more information on stock. I would have bought more shares of apple so I could make some more money because you times the number of shares you bought by the price of one share. I would have changed TJ Max into something I picked for myself and not go with what the teacher picked. I would have picked Panara Bread or Royal Caribbean cruise lines. I would have not gotten Ebay because it did not do very well.
If I could go back to the beginning of this project and I was more serious about it than I am now, before I plan to pick my favorites, I would have researched more on the companies and made sure that they were reliable. I also would have tried to get closer to the metaphorical 1.250.000 Isk ($10,0000) by buying more shares of Apple so maby I could have made more money that way.
