Stocks. Stocks are a world wide gamble in themselves. Luckily, this year in math we never really invested in stocks. We did a stock project this year in math, and we chose three stocks to “invest” in. We learned a lot about how the system works and how to make smart choices when dealing with stocks. In this Essay, I will answer three questions about my stocks, Johnson and Johnson, Kraft Food, and Walt Disney.
The stocks I chose were Johnson and Johnson, Kraft Foods, and Walt Disney Co. I chose these companies because I have used all of their products in the past and have had impressive results. My first company was Johnson and Johnson. I Chose this company because my mom uses their cream and the stock was going up at the time. I also chose this product because it is a very popular product. My second company was Kraft foods. I also chose this company because I like their Mac N' Cheese and pasta, and because a lot of people us have their products.
My last company was Walt Disney. I chose Walt Disney because it is a very popular tourist destination, and it is known world wide.
If I had to make any changes to my stock market portfolio, it would probably be that I wouldn't keep Johnson and Johnson. This is because I lost money investing in this stock, and it only hurt my overall gain. If I were to invest in something other than Johnson and Johnson it would probably be Apple. I would choose apple because other people who used this company made a lot of money off of it. I would defiantly keep Walt Disney. I would keep Walt Disney because I made the most on this company, and I would probably keep going with this company if I could. I would also keep Kraft food s because I made a considerable amount of money off of that company too.
If I had to give advice about stocks to anyone I would probably tell them to know their stocks. Make sure you know what your company does and what it is about. You should research your company before you go in vest in it. And you should also know the beginning price of your stock so that you can time it right to sell it when it's high. I would also tell them to do weekly updates. I would say you should check your stocks every week, report your gains and losses, and record your progress. I would also tell them to stay organized and make sure your dates are correct. And lastly I would tell them to sell the stocks when they are high, and record all of your gains and loses.
So overall stocks are a confusing and complicated system but when handled right, you can make some money. You have to understand that stocks are risky and unreliable, but are sometimes worth the gamble. My stocks did well, I earned over five hundred dollars and now know that if I were to invest in others, I would make sure I knew their background well. So in full I had fun doing my stock project.
