FIN 100: Principles of Finance:

HI, AFTER READING THE ASSIGNMENT BELOW, PLEASE GO DOWN TO SEE MY WEEK 1 STOCK JOURNAL POST, SO YOU CAN CONTINUE FROM THE STOCK JOURNAL (SCENARIO) FROM THERE. FOR WEEK 10 STOCK JOURNAL PLEASE RECORD CURRENT(RIGHT NOW) PRICE/VALUE. FOR WEEK 8 ,TRY TO FIND OUT THE STOCK VALUE FROM 2 WEEKS AGO FROM TODAY TO WRITE THE JOURNAL.

Week 8: Please note that this assignment is based on a pretend scenario and fictitious money. However, the assignment is based on actual stock pricing in real time situations. Do not invest your personal money for this assignment.

You may be following your stock every day, but if you’re not, for Week 8 you must:

  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 (e.g., day one price, the opening, the low, the high, the close, or any price you find when you check it during the day). Using MS Excel spreadsheet or MS Word document, 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 total based on the number of shares and the new price per share, for each company.
  3. Provide your opinion / assessment of your investments. Evaluate the results of your current investment. Are you happy with the result and the trend? Are you upset because you’re investment is worth less than $25,000. Feel free to speculate / guess at why you believe the stock increased, decreased, or remained static.

Week 10. Please note that this assignment is based on a pretend scenario and fictitious money. However, the assignment is based on actual stock pricing in real time situations. Do not invest your personal money for this assignment.

This is the week you have been waiting for – to see if you are walking home a ‘pretend’ millionaire, or whether you would be finding a side job to recoup your losses.

For Week 10, review your investment for the last time. You must:

  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 (e.g., day one price, the opening, the low, the high, the close, or any price you find when you check it during the day). Using a MS Excel spreadsheet or MS Word document, put your Week 8 and Week 10 stock prices side-by-side, to show the comparison.
  2. Determine the total value of your investment.
  3. Provide your final opinion / assessment of your investments. Did you make money or lose money? Discuss your results and, based on hindsight, describe what you would do differently.
  4. Discuss what you learned from this assignment. Do you believe this assignment will help you in the future in any way?

MY WEEK 1 STOCK JOURNAL POST:

Economic State of the U.S.

Current GDP: $19.39 trillion (2017). Increased by 4.1% (2nd Quarter 2018)

(Gross Domestic Product, 2018)

Current Federal Deficit: $793 billion

(Budget, 2018)

Current Federal Debt: $21.46 trillion

(Budget, 2018)

Bottom Line of the Current Budget: $1,065 billion

(FY 2018 Budget)

What This Data Infers

With the current rates, the federal deficits and debts are bound to increase as years go by. Increasing deficits are a sign that spending has tremendously increased but revenues are lower and thus not able to support that trend. This is primarily due to the increase in GDP which implies the increase in production and thus the increase in spending as a result of income increase. However, income in the United States is maintained stagnant with an increasing GDP and this is what could result in a huge deficit. In the next close to 30 years, the nation is expected to have increased the federal debt. However, this trend can be disrupted if the current laws and policies are revised. To ensure economic stability, it is quite critical for policy makers to ensure that the country can pay their national debt without disrupting economic growth.
