Abstract

We undertake extensive research regarding investing plans, strategies, and methods that have been used by investing professionals Then we apply this knowledge by taking part in a stock market simulation to gain experience through the formation and maintenance of multiple portfolios. From our research and the simulation we conclude that portfolio diversification, company earnings, and commitment to a long-term investing strategy are three valuable elements of investment.
