  • Is Revlon doing better or worse than yesterday? How do you know?

Revlon is doing better than yesterday. I concluded this because because on the stock table it said that the stock price for share had increased.

  • Is Rite Aid nearer to it's yearly high or low? Would this be a good time to purchase the stock? Explain.

Rite Aid is kind of in the middle, but it is closer to the yearly low rather than the yearly high. If you are interested in a long-term investment now is an appropriate time to buy, but the stock market has been shaky so you might want to see if it goes lower.

  • What are the stock ticker symbols for Revlon and Rite Aid? Are you surprised? Explain.

REV is for Revlon and RAD is for Rite Aid. I am not surprised for Revlon, but I am kind of surprised for rite aid. I really did not know what to expect though.

  • Did either Revlon or Rite Aid pay a dividend?

Both are dividend companies, but neither paid a dividend today.

  • Which two pieces of information shown on this stock chart would you consider most important for people to find out before purchasing the stock of a company? Explain.

I believe that the most important information found on thestock for people are considering to buy stock are the 52 week high and the 52 week low(yearly performances). I think this because new buy are morelikely concerned about weekly gains rather then today's gains.

  • Would the same information be the most important information for people who already own stock in these companies? Explain.

No, I think that the 52 week high and low would not be the most important for people who already own the stock. I think the most important information for people who already own the stock is the daily profit/loss. I believe this is more important to them because it shows the money they are making/losing.

  • What would you guess was the general trend of the market on this particular day? Explain what information led you to this conclusion.

Minimal changed throughout the day, but the overall outcome was an increase on average of 0.07%. I came up with this conclusion by searching the DOW industrial average.
RISK:Investment 1: Jax Company provides gas and electric to your area. Its stock has risen slowly and steadily over the last two years. It pays an annual dividend of $4 per share per year. You own 200 shares, so the company pays you a yearly dividend of $800. What type of risk are you taking by investing in Jax Company? Explain This is capital risk because you already own some of these shares. This means that you can only use from what you already have. I would say that this is a low risk since the shares are slowly increasing.

Investment 2: Watching the news, you learn a new drug is coming out that supposedly makes children smarter. You’ve never heard of the drug manufacturer, but you decide to invest in this company. Why wouldn’t we want our children smarter? If you have no other information and plan to invest in this drug company, what kind of risk are you taking? Explain.
I would say that is is a higher risk because it is a new company with no financial history. Also this this is a new product it might not have been tested thourghly.
Investment 3: Interior Electric announces it is creating an all-electric car, but it hasn’t come out yet. Based on the news, its stock price has increased 20% in one month. If you buy the stock now, what type of risk are you taking? Explain.
You are taking a medium risk because it hasn't been released yet, but since the price is going up it seems to be an okay investment.

Investment 4: ALLON Clothing Company’s profits have almost doubled this year. The price of the stock has gone up from $48 to $56 over the same period. If you were to invest in this stock, what degree of risk would this investment present? Explain.
I would present a medium degree of risk. I think this because it has been increasing, yet it might go down soon. It might go down soon because stock doesn't increase that much forever; it may be reaching the highest point, and then drop.
