Since last fall we’ve been doing a long term stock market project in history. The boys were each given a maximum of 1,000 virtual dollars to invest in one single stock. They’ve been following the ups and downs of their stock every week for 22 weeks.
Cameron chose to invest in Apple (AAPL). This was a mistake (though he says right now would probably be an excellent time to invest in them). He bought at $112.49 and was able to get 8 shares for a total of $899.92. He sold today at $93.90 with a loss of $148.72.
Fritz picked PepsiCo stock (PEP). He earned a little bit over the course of the project. He bought at $98.83 and was about to get 10 shares for a total of $988.30. He sold at $102.82, giving him a profit of $39.90.
Adrian likes Skylanders and other games so he invested in the company that makes them, Activision (ATVI). He is our big winner in this project. He bought at $34.47. He was able to purchase a 29 shares for a total of $999.63. He sold today at $38.60, the highest Activision stock has been in the last 22 weeks, earning a profit of $119.77.
