We just finished our finance unit by making social responsible investments on the stock market. Out of the 14 companies we researched on we choose the most INTELLIGENT stocks to invest in. We didn't only consider the most solid stocks but also how they were presented and their social responsibility. The companies chosen were:
1. Starbucks (mine)
3. First Solar
The energy in the class was E X U B E R A N T everyone was looking for the current prices of their stocks, P/E ratios and betas. When it was time to choose the stocks everyone was defending their company. It seemed like I was on a real business, I really felt that I was working on a R E A L financial investment and I was serving a R E A L costumer. It was exiting but at the same time it was frustrating and scary to see which stocks were gonna get picked. In the real world people compete like this and it was interesting to truly experience this in class.
This unit was very very cool and it opened my eyes to a very new world, something I have developed interest in and may possibly like to explore more in depth and maybe study in the future.
