Investing money in the stock market is essential for companies to gain capital for operations and services. Stocks are bought and sold all the time and prices fluctuate constantly, opening the possibility of loss to an investor as well as profit. This project watched 27 companies and seeks to compare how large companies's stocks fare against small companies's stocks and how growth stocks fare against value stocks. A stock market simulator was used for trades over about 6 weeks. Internet resources were used to aid in investment decisions and to identify market trends.
