Abstract

A ten-week stock simulation was conducted to learn basic investment principles, perform quantitative analyses, explore qualitative analyses on investment securities, and gain real world experience with common investment techniques and investment vehicles. Research was performed to identify investment styles that would maximize profits while minimizing risk. Topics examined included sector research, company profitability, P/E comparisons to accepted standards, effects of investor impressions, and the effect of seasonal conditions on specific sectors.
