Instructions

For this week’s portion of the assignment, complete the following:

  1. 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 (for example, day one price, the opening, the low, the high, the close, or any price you find when you check it during the day).
    • Use the MS Excel spreadsheet or MS Word document to put your Week 3 and Week 8 stock prices side-by-side, to show your comparison.
  2. Determine the current value of your total investment.
    • Do not make any changes to your investment at this time.
    • Calculate your new total (earnings or losses) based on the number of shares and the new price per share, for each company.
  3. Provide your assessment of your investments after evaluating the results of your current investments. This is the information you will include in your word document template. 
    • Consider the following  as you provide your assessment:
      • How would you evaluate the results of your current investment?
      • Why do you believe the stock increased, decreased, or remained static?
      • Are you upset because your investment is worth less than $25,000?
      • Are you happy with the result and the trend?
