You may print your question and my answer and bring both to school. I’m very happy you are being taught and “learning about the real world”. There is much, much more to learn, but my answer to your question is a good start. This is what I know about stocks: Every broker has different fees and commissions. You are going to have to do your homework to find out who will let you pretend to “trade” [more commonly known as “paper trading”] using an account with limited funds. OR since this is a project, ask your teacher about this. He/She may tell everyone to use the same broker. This keeps the whole class “on the same even page/field”. By properly investing AND WATCHING the stocks you choose, you may be able to “have your money grow”. At the same time, if you don’t watch what goes on with those stocks you chose, you could lose A LOT of that money. Stocks [more commonly known as “shares”] are actually small -pieces of a corporation. Stocks are bought and sold at a location - known as “the exchange” - to earn money for that corporation. Brokers are the middle people. Brokers bring the Buyers [“BUlls”] and the Sellers [“BEars”] together. Do you see how the terms are related? If not, BEars are SEllers and BUlls are BUyers. How did they get those names? When a bull defends itself it throws its head up. Buyers cause stock prices to rise or go up. When a bear defends itself, it moves its paws down. Bears cause stock prices to decline or go down. Using their money, the Bulls are “betting” a stock’s price will go up. This is known as being “Bullish”. Using their money, the Bears are “betting” a stock’s price will go down.. This is known as being “Bearish”. When a Bull and a Bear agree on a price for a certain number of shares in that stock, the broker’s job is to bring Bull and Bear together. Money is paid for the stock. THEN that Bull owns that small piece of that corporation. AND that Bear has the money from that Bull. Sometimes a Bull will buy a stock, “betting” or with the intention of having the price go up, but that stock’s price goes down. THEN the Bull loses money. Sometimes a Bear will buy a stock, “betting” or with the intention of having the price go down, but the price goes up. THEN the Bear loses money. As you will learn, many people refer to “”earning” money as “making” money. Here’s one point you might want to keep in mind: The ONLY people who “make” money work for the U.S. Government at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, D. C. and at the mints where the coins are made. Every other person must “earn“ money.. At one time or another, Bulls AND Bears earn money. When the stock’s price goes up, they earn money. When the stock’s price goes down, they earn money. When the stock’s price goes sideways ["consolidates"], they earn money. Any person trading in the market [known as a "trader"], MUST have patience AND the ability to believe the position he or she buys or is in will have a return on that trader's money ["investment"]. Any person trading in the market MUST ALSO KNOW AND HAVE a limit as to how much of a loss he or she will accept - without allowing the account to go broke or almost go down to $0. When the account goes broke or below a certain amount, the trader cannot trade anymore. THE ONLY way a trader can “get back in the market” is to deposit more money in his or her trading account. Here are some market sayings and expressions: "Bulls earn money. Bears earn money. Pigs get fat. Hogs [greedy traders] get slaughtered." These folks lose A LOT of money. "There are no gifts on Wall Street." "You am trading people. You are not trading stocks. "V.I.C.P.I.E.: Volume Is the Cause; Price Is the Effect." “Trees don’t grow to Heaven. Neither do stocks’ prices go to Heaven. "Plan the trade. Trade the plan." There are many, many others. Thank you for asking your question. I enjoyed taking the time to answer it. You did a great job - not only for your information, but for every other person interested in reading my answer. Thanks to everyone for reading my answer. I wish you well. VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name.

Jeez where to start? Make sure you know what you're investing in (I live and die by this rule). For example, people might tell you to invest in a carbon fiber company, but I (and Im sure you as well) know nothing about the carbon fiber business. Now look at Chipotle (CMG). If you invested in them a year ago, you would have increased your money 4-fold and what is there to know about the burrito business besides the delicious food and the line that stretches all the way out the door during lunch? You should check out my blog (people tell me it's very helpful), it's dedicated to the beginner/ college investor. It should set you off in the right direction.

Get rich quick schemes in the capitalist business world, (buyouts, IPOs, conglomerates, acquisitions, mergers, and the stock market), do not actually work. Remaining solvent does not actually exist within false economics capitalism. Profit existing in the capitalist business world, or millionaires existing within capitalism, is pathological deception committed by the 21 organizations spying on the public with plain clothes agents, (with covert fake names and fake backgrounds). Actual economics is the persons paying the monthly business loan payments of companies voting at work in order to control the property they are paying for. Capitalism is the psychology of imaginary parents, false economics, and the criminal deception of employees that are paying the bills (including the stocks and bonds, or shares) of companies. Anti-democracy republicanism is the psychology of imaginary parents and false government.

Avon, Starbucks might be of good help to buy. Buy something made in America. If you get a retail stock person to help you, they charge per transaction.

Dyson Originally Answered: It seems like right now would be a great time to buy some stock.Am I right?
Yes you are absolutely correct. Now is an excellent time to invest. You will want to understand the basics of investing first though. For this consider going to a bookstore and picking something up. To oversimplify, the reason stock prices move up and down is because of something called the P/E ratio. This stands for "Price To Earnings" ratio. Essentially if somebody told you they would sell you a company for 100 dollars that makes about 50 dollars per year that would be a good deal (the business would pay for itself in 2 years. Plus you would probably be able to sell it again to somebody else). On wall street we would say that this company has a P/E ratio of 2 (very rare and extremely good). You should expect this stock price to increase very rapidly until it reaches a more reasonable P/E ratio (like 10) But what if the company won't be making as much money next year as it did this year? Then is the price appropriate? Say someone tells you they will sell you a business for 100 dollars that made 50 dollars last year. Sounds like a good deal, but what if the company sells mortgage backed securities (which nobody wants anymore). Maybe next year it only makes 5 dollars. This would give it a P/E ratio of 20 (it would double your money in 20 years). But a stinkin' government bond can do that! Good luck selling that company for 100 dollars next year. Even worse what happens if the company is actually losing money! This is what is currently happening to Citigroup. It seems silly to buy a company that you will have to pay for in order to cover the losses that it takes on. If you are very sure based on your analysis of Citigroup that it will survive the next year or so without going bankrupt and then begin to make as much money as it did in the past well then you found yourself an amazing bargain. The smartest thing to do is to look for strong companies with very consistent earnings despite the economic downturn. Try to find them for reasonable prices like say a P/E ratio of 5 or 10. These are easy to find right now as the stock market has vastly over-exaggerated the current economic situation (as usual). Pick up a book before you invest. There are other factors to consider besides P/E, but that's the jist of the stock market.
