EXCEL MINI-PROJECT: STOCK INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO
DATE: SEPTEMBER 29, 2013
DUE DATE: October 8, 2014
For this project each student is required to create a fictitious stock portfolio by investing a total of $1,000,000 (not real money) in four technology companies (e.g. Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Google). Create your own portfolio by distributing $1,000,000 evenly across the four companies. You buy each stock at the closing price of today (September 29, 2014), and your investment would last until December 3, 2014. You will make trade decision, analyze the portfolio’s performance, and create charts using Excel to evaluate the relative performance of the stocks in the portfolio. You can use Yahoo! Finance to get all of the necessary information.
