Netflix is doing the best from my companies and Samsung is doing the worst.
Netflix is doing really well because I bought it when it was very low so I would get a good profit and it would jump straight up. I think my samsung is going bad because no one is buying the company and everyone is buying the bigger and better companies. For some people samsung is becoming higher but i bought it very late so i didn't get much profit. I sold 2 of my stocks, one of them was starbucks because when i bought it, it went really high up and was giving me a lot of money, it then started getting lower and was not giving me profit anymore. So i sold star bucks and got the money back from it. I bought Deutsche bank because I was buying most of the American companies and I thought it might be better to get a European company and see if this company was better for my ranking and money.
In my portfolio I would like to change some of my stocks. I bought a lot of the big companies that everyone knows about and I could see that they were not going up for a while. I did not change this but after a few days I checked and they started increasing and giving me profit. So there is nothing that I want to change now.
My best company is still Netflix and my worst company is Starbucks. My investments were really good and I decided well on what I should buy or sell. I bought stocks that will get me a good profit and make me earn money. If I were to redo this project I would buy stocks when they are low and not so popular companies so that when you get them you will get the highest profit from them. I would also have my data more organized because this project my updates were not organized and some of the stocks I bought I could not get any line graphs, this might have been a problem with the stock or I did something wrong.
I would not invest in the same stocks because this project I invested in all the major companies and even though they didn't bring me down, I could still get more profit from other companies that are not major and known all around the world. When I started this project I didn't know anything about stocks and trading, but after this It was a fun way of learning how to buy companies and invest without actual money which I thought was a great way to learn.
