2.) Student Response – Meghan Palmer
Well in this case I am in love with securities!!! I have stocks and bonds for myself and my children!! I believe that these are important for the future of any child or person. Securities are a tradable financial asset. I currently have stocks in Tesla and Amazon! This is a great example of securities. You can publicly trade them for money or another stock. There are two types of securities debt security and equity security. Debt security is a negotiable or tradable liability or loan. An example of this would be a risky car loan or house loan. This brings me back to a few weeks ago when we watched the video on the 2007 crisis. There was a lot of risky loans and this is why the market crashed and also why a lot of people when under!

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:
- 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 a MS Word document, put your Week 3 and Week 8 stock prices side-by-side, to show your comparison.
- 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.
- 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.
Your final journal assignment will be to report the final value of your shares in Week 10.
