Business Orientation & Stocks

Currently students are working on an in-depth analysis of a company registered on the stock market. Students will research a company’s stock price over the past ten years to identify specific highs and lows. Based on their findings and spikes in the chart, students will identify market, company, or other causes that may have impacted the performance of the stock. Students determine if they would recommend that company to investors and the research will be used to help create stock portfolios they will track for the remainder of the semester.ImageImage
