Choose the stock of at least two companies that you might be interested in buying and write a brief summary about the company, why you would like to invest in this particular stock and the pricing history for the last 5 years. You can go to Yahoo Finance (https://finance.yahoo.com/ (Links to an external site.)) to look up stock symbols and the history of the stock. Be sure to answer the following questions for each stock in 250+ words total:
1. What does this company do? (see Yahoo Finance and click on Profile)
2. Go to the Summary page on Yahoo Finance: what is the current price of this stock, what is the 52-week price range of this stock, what is the market cap of the stock and does it offer a dividend?
3. Explain the pricing history of the stock over the last five years (see Yahoo Finance, click on Chart and then select 5 YR). Do you think this price history is a good predictor for the future? Why or why not?
4. Would you buy this stock today? Why or why not?
Please answer the questions in 1-2 pages of writing (total), about 250+ words. Include a detailed explanation and be sure to proofread for typos and grammar errors (or you can easily run Spell and Grammar Check in Word in the Review tab). Remember, one-sentence answers do not receive credit in this course. If you would like one point of extra credit, add a supply and demand graph to show why the price of one of your stocks has changed in the last year (be sure to explain what is happening in the graph).
