2nd part to finance journal
as you work on the second iteration of the stock journal, please keep in mind that the number of shares you use to compute the total value of each stock (and the total value of the portfolio) should be the same number of shares from week three. What changes this week is you use current prices for the three stocks. Also, make sure you fully answer all questions for full credit and contact me with questions.
here are the instructions :
- Record the current price of the stock for each company you selected in Week 3’s Stock Journal. You may use any price during this week (e.g., day one price, the opening, the low, the high, the close, or any price you find when you check it during the day). Using MS Excel spreadsheet or MS Word document, put your Week 3 and Week 8 stock prices side-by-side, to show your comparison.
- Determine the current value of your total investment. Do not make any changes to your investment at this time. Calculate your total based on the number of shares and the new price per share, for each company.
- Provide your opinion / assessment of your investments. Evaluate the results of your current investment. Are you happy with the result and the trend? Are you upset because you’re investment is worth less than $25,000. Feel free to speculate / guess at why you believe the stock increased, decreased, or remained static.
