Did it go up or down, and by how much?
Learning Goal: I’m working on a finance writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.The topic for this discussion will be investing in stocks which is covered in Chapter 14. For this exercise, you will need to pick one publicly traded corporate stock to evaluate. First, tell us how the stock has performed during the past several years in terms of its share price. Did it go up or down, and by how much?Next, tell us whether or not you think the stock would make a good long-term investment and why (give several reasons). Any stock you want to evaluate is fine. You do not need to do a detailed quantitative analysis. Just provide a brief commentary on how the company’s prospects look going forward based on your research (e.g., do they have great technology, is the market they are in growing, do they have much competition).Chapter 14 lists many websites that are useful for researching stocks, so feel free to use those or any others you find. As always, you must also comment on at least one other student’s post to get full credit.Discussion Board Rubric
