Stock Market Final Report
In the wild world of stocks, there are many ups and downs. I learned about the Bear and Bull market. I now know what a stock Broker. I was educated about NYSE, NASDAQ, and DJIA. I learned that Wall street is where stock exchange and major banks are situated.
For my stock project I chose Caterpillar, AT&T, and Hennes & Mauritz. The stock that did the best out of the stocks I invested in was Caterpillar. I picked it because I know what it does and I was familiar with the company. I also looked at the graph that showed the prices in the last year, and it seemed like it was going up. I also chose AT&T because it is my family's phone company, so that means that I know about it. They also made a better version of the iPhone which was already the most common phone. I didn't know anything about Hennes & Maritza, but my friends dad works with stocks and said it would do well in the future. My stock market project did pretty well for me.
Now that I've watched the stock market I would make a few changes. I would change my Hennes & Mauritz stock to Netflix. I now know that Netflix has done very well and Hennes & Mauritz didn't do nearly as well as Netflix. I also would change my AT&T stock to Apple. I found out that apple has done tremendous in the stock market, unlike AT&T. I definitely wouldn't change my Caterpillar stock because I made over 1,000 dollars alone in this stock. But I might have had more shares in Caterpillar. Other than those changes I would keep my stocks just how it is.
The advice that I would give to someone that was interested in stocks would help them in making money. The first thing they should do in investing in stocks is to know the company. They should know the company so that they have a good idea what they do and if they do well in making money. You also should do research on the stock. You should look at the graphs that shows how it's done in the past. This advice would help you in making money in the stock market.
This stock project was helpful in learning about stocks. I had had good reasons to buy those certain stock. I'm happy I invested in Caterpillar, AT&T, and Hennes & Mauritz. They all made money but some more than others. This stock project has been extremely educational and will help me if I ever invest for real in the stock market.
