Hershey was the candy of our choice since everyone in the group agreed that it was the most common and most preferable candy to receive on Halloween. The strategy of our group was to buy familiar name brand products that we thought to be highly popular. We decided to be safe in our purchases and with two of our stocks we bought the absolute minimum amount of shares. Under the advice of Nicks father we bought Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX). Outside of GDX we did not have a set plan for our future stock buying. We decided on Hershey seeing that on the time of purchase it was about a week before Halloween and we were expecting a rise in price. As we watched the Nike stock we noticed that it decreased greatly, and expected it to rise soon after. If we were to play the game again, we would make a lot of necessary changes in hopes of doing better. First off, we would buy at a higher price previously we went for low costing stocks but if we had a chance to do it again we would buy higher, make a few more risks and invest in more companies not just the minimum.We would also more religiously study and enlighten ourselves about a stock before we bought and follow it more closely after being bought.
