Therefore, we bought stocks in companies with stocks that were low, steady, and seemed as if they were rising, so that in the future, they would grow and we could make some money. This strategy would have worked if our stock prices had actually gone up, but they did not. In fact, our stock prices dropped, and we went from being ranked 5 to being ranked 28. We decided to change our strategy. We decided to earn money from ETFs because they invest in the market as a whole and therefore have a greater chance of increasing.This worked: our rank went from 28 to 15.

Gain/Loss: $319.68 Reason: Darin Frodey, who works at Panera, reported that recently the company has released new products that are becoming more and more popular with the customers. Trade: It is a great investment because there has had an increase in the popularity of the new electronic devices it has been unveiling Our stock for COKE would not go through with the transaction, so we picked its competitor, Pepsi. Because, like COKE, the product is very popular and many restaurants list the company's products on their menus as primary beverages.

Gain/Loss: $121.66 Google is popular and has constantly been gaining users for things like gmail and online shopping. Trade: Profile: Trade: We decided to invest in VXUS because we felt that it would diversifying our portfolio. The VXUS invests in international companies, therefore increasing our chance of a good return. We decided to invest in VNQ because it would diversify our stocks in the field of real estate. We felt that investments in real estate could be very profitable because of the high initial costs and the constant demand for buildings. We felt Morgan Stanley was a strong choice to invest in because we read about how it is one of the largest investment/financial companies. We felt VTI was a strong investment choice because of how it invests in the entire US stock market instead of one company. We felt Microsoft was a strong investment opportunity because Microsoft is a leader in computers and technology. Many programs and systems have proven to be very successful. We decided to invest in Kirby Corp because of the constant need to transport freight, and we wanted to diversify our portfolio.

End: 1/3/13-150 stocks-$10732.50
Gain/Loss: $60.00 Trade: Rio Tinto PLC is a multinational group that specializes in many precious metals and materials. This company has operations all over the world. We chose to invest in Rio Tinto PLC because of the increasing in demand for precious metals and materials such as diamonds, aluminum, iron ore, copper, and uranium. We decided to invest in JNJ because of the constant demand for pharmaceutical goods. By investing in this company, we would also be entering ourselves into various parts of the market. The stock price closed slightly higher than the price at which we bought it; thus, we experienced a slight gain. Since the stock experienced a fairly steady gain, although it was slight, we would buy more stock in this company. The stock price rose steadily over the period of time we owned it. Therefore, we experienced a gain by buying into the company. Since we experienced a steady gain from this stock, we would likely buy more stocks from Morgan Stanley. The stock price closed at a lower price than that at which we bought it. Since the stock price closed at a lower price, while also considering that we only owned it for a short time, we would sell off some of the stock and see its progress over a longer period of time. The stock steadily decreased, while fluctuating a bit, until we sold it at a lower price than that at which we purchased it. Since the stock price steadily decreased and seemed to be continuing to do so, we sold off our stocks in this company. The stock price decreased until we sold it at a lower price than that at which we purchased it. Since the stock price decreased and we foresaw it continuing to do so, we sold all of our stocks in this company. The stock price steadily decreased until we sold it at a lower price than we had purchased it. Since the stock price decreased and seemed to be continuing to do so, we sold off our stocks in this company. Since the stock price steadily decreased and seemed to be continuing to do so, we sold off our stocks in this company. Since the stock price decreased and seemed to be continuing to do so, we sold off our stocks in this company. The stock price steadily decreased until we sold it at a lower price than we had purchased it. The stock price steadily decreased until we sold it at a lower price than we had purchased it. As the game went on, we saw a gradual increase in profits. We also feel that the investment in an ETF helped our portfolio become more diversified. Since the VXUS stock was very successful, we would invest more in this stock to increase our profits. Throughout our period of investing, we saw Amazon slowly increase in value. We feel Amazon was a great investment because we did not lose our initial investment. Since Amazon was a very successful stock, we would keep our initial investment in the company and let the stock earn profit. At first, we felt Microsoft would increase in profit because of the constant demand for new technology. Instead, we saw results that were constantly varying throughout the game. Because of the fluctuating results, we would not keep investing money in Microsoft. We feel that our money could be better used in different companies. Google was a great investment because of our large return. We decided to keep our Google stock throughout the entire game. Since we received a very large return on our initial investment, we would purchase more stock in Google. JNJ was a fair investment. Although we invested late in the game, we were still able to make a small return. With more time, we feel we would be able to turn out a much higher return with JNJ. Pepsi Co. was a loss for us. By the end of the game, the stock price was in the red zone with a negative return. We would likely sell some of our stocks in the future. Since we had a negative return, we feel our money could be better invested in other companies. VTI was an overall great investment. We managed to turn a fair profit throughout our game. We would likely continue to invest in VTI because of our current margin of profit. VNQ was an overall great investment opportunity. We managed to turn a fair profit from the stock throughout our game. We would like to continue to invest in VNQ because of our current margin of profit. Fed Ex turned out to be a great investment opportunity for our team. We managed to gain a large profit during the game. We would continue to invest in Fed Ex because of the amount of return we made during the duration of the game. Conclusion We started out with 100,000 dollars and ended with about 102,741 dollars. So, we gained 2, 741.

We clearly achieved our goal of being successful because we gained money over the time period the game was being played. We started out on a weak foot with our stocks decreasing in value every day for almost a week. We then changed our strategy and diversified more and invested in fewer technology heavy companies. This became our strategy until the end of the game.

This game helped the members of our group understand how the stock market works and gain some insight into stock market trends.
