In math class we were asked to select three companies to purchase stocks in. We were allowed $10000 and we could buy any company that we liked. I selected Disney, Target, and Google. I chose Disney because I was getting ready for a trip to Florida and many families take a trip to Disney World which is located in Orlando Florida. I chose Target because I like their products and because they have really fun and bright commercials. Finally I chose Google because they just came out with their internet browser called Google Chrome and it is supposed to be the most popular browser yet.
If I had the chance to change my stocks I would probably change Google. I had a loss of over $700 in the Google stock. If I could I would swap it with Sirius Radio. This is because a girl in my grade bought it as a penny stock and it is no longer a penny stock and she made thousands of dollars. I would also buy Nike because my friend earned over $800 on it. This is a good deal because she only paid $63 and she ended with $77.
I would say if a friend were to invest in a stock you should look into it first. For instance you should check the historical prices and the yearly progress chart to see if the stock is in a bearish or a bullish state. Also you should buy the stock while it is down but on the way back up because then you can make some profit off of it. Google for example is not a good stock to buy because it is progressively going down, but Disney is going up and is not at an extremely high price at the moment. So if you are looking for a stock to invest in, take time to look into it first.
