Stock Final Report
Overall I felt good about the stock project we did this year but here are a few questions and their answers we were asked in our final report. Here are the questions, why did we choose these companies, is there anything you would have changed, and what are some good strategies and advice you would give to people doing this in the future. Here are my answers.
American Eagle Outfitters was my worst stock but with the number of shares I bought of it I did okay. I probably wouldn't have changed anything about my American Eagle Outfitters stock. I picked American Eagle Outfitters for three reasons I like the store, when I checked the stocks they were cheap but rising in price and lastly they are a very popular store in apparel so I thought that they may do well.
Kelloggs Co. was my best company they rise very quickly so I definitely wouldn't do anything different. I picked Kellogg's Co. because first of all they were doing well, next I didn't think many people would do it so I'd be one of a kind and last for some reason while we were picking our stocks I was thinking about cereal.
Starbucks Co. was my second to best stock so I wouldn't have done anything different to that either. I chose Starbucks Co because first I love the cafe, last they're a big company so I thought they would do well.
Some advice I would give out to other people doing stocks in the future is that always check the top stocks because you will probably do well on them. Next, if you can't think of anything to do choose companies you like. Last, sometimes cheap stocks do really well after you buy them so check the graphs and then buy them if they are actually doing well.
This stock project was very successful and I'm glad I did it. I learned about stocks and spreadsheets. The stocks I chose did well and I'm glad I chose them. Learning about spreadsheets was very helpful and learning about it was something that I'll remember forever.
