While lookingthrough and search for many varieties of stocks to purchase, I came across manythat caught my eye whether it became a positive impact or a negative one. Oneof my stocks which is currently doing very well is Facebook. Facebook is apopular free social networking website that allows registered users to createprofiles, upload photos and video, send messages and keep in touch withfriends, family and colleagues. McDonald’s was one I thought would be very goodbut it now slightly a little under what I had expected.
McDonald’s is a fastfood restaurant world wide that is very popular in most of the world’slocation. Their foods contain fatty foods such as hamburgers, French fries, chickennuggets, and a very large portion of many other foods. While we are on thetopic of bad stocks, I will mention the others that weren’t so successful.
Xerox slightly did a bit better than McDonald’s but still failed to be a greatstock that I purchased. Xerox is an American global corporation that sellsdocument solutions and services, and document technology products in more than160 countries. Along the lines of how poorly the other stocks were, Twitter wasalso right behind them as well. Twitter is an online news and social networkingservice where users post and interact with messages, called “tweets.”The most worst stock I had was Revlon. Revlon brought me down greatly and wasalmost three times as wore than the others.
Revlon, Inc. is an Americanmultinational cosmetic, skin care, fragrance, and personal care company foundedin 1932 and based in New York City. Aside from the bad stocks, I did have a fewmore than were doing just fine such as eBay. eBay Inc. is a multinationale-commerce corporation headquartered in San Jose, California that facilitatesconsumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales through its website. Thisstock can be very good but also changes every now and then depending on the dayand business.
Best Buy was another successful business stock I bought that didvery well. Best Buy is a leading provider of technology products, services andsolutions. FedEx right in front of Best Buy, currently, is the second top stockI have that is doing great for me. FedEx Corporation is an Americanmultinational courier delivery services company headquartered in Memphis,Tennessee.
The top stock beating all the rest about three times more at themoment is Polo Ralph Lauren. This company is known for the clothing, marketingand distribution of products in four categories: apparel, home, accessories,and fragrances. For each stock, I bought approximately 10 to 15 for each one.That was probably not my best method, but it did come out fine at the end.During the time that I had the stocks, I observed the dramatic changes thateach one had. Some would be doing well for a few days and out of nowhere, itwould be the worst stock I had. This showed me how different stocks can be andhow quick they can change in such little time.
Now that I know how these stockswork, what I would do differently when choosing stocks is more research and seehow they do in a certain amount of days before actually buying it. But withthis, purchasing stocks and bonds is not the only way to save for retirement,there is many other ways such as selecting low-cost investments, balancingsafety with growth, etc. After completing the stock market game, I learned thatwhatever I buy depending with what company affects how money and business goeswhich might impact my future.
