Stock Advice

I am doing a simulation of trading stock throughout the semester for one of my classes. I was looking for advice of companies to invest in to begin with.

TIA

You could impress your professor and build a portfolio off of beer stocks

I like natural gas right now. CHK, ECA, XOM, DVN, SD.

I'm not saying go all out natural gas, but it has a few things that seem to be working for it including a seemingly colder winter than most recent years, the recent insertion of CNG for fleet vehicles. I would think at some point in the future CNG may be an option for the consumer.

We did this a while back for a summer internship at a brokerage firm. It was through Investopedia and it had a 20 minute market delay (still does I believe).

Each group was partnered up with a stock broker and we were picking stuff he recommended etc.. Well we had live feed on the market. So we would pick a few stocks and just load up on them and within a few minutes if they didn't do well we would cancel the trades and try again.

They found out we were doing it and just stopped keeping track of the game. I think our portfolio ended up like 560% in a couple months.

re: Stock Advice
Uhh why wouldn't you just load up on any stock that shot up in live trading? Since your dummy acct was on a 20 minute delay this should have been pretty easy?

Since it is a simulation why not focus on stock related to 3D Printing. I think SSYS is one. Might be fun to explore.

DDD is another 3d printing stock. Pretty cool idea but I feel the stocks are over sold. Huge run up lately

I'm looking at XLP (an ETF), and these mutual funds: PTTDX, VHDYX, SXFIX, PAUIX, SMVLX.

You could look at the top 2 stock holdings of each of the above and come up with a portfolio (some of the above, however may be bonds).

For instance, the ETF above has P & G and Coke as the 2 at the top, according to MSNmoney.

I've made some money with TQQQ

It's a pretty aggressive Nasdaq based ETF

If AAPL wasn't dragging the Nasdaq I would have made a lot more money but I'm not complaining.

What gas? The gas players are all trying to get heavy into oil and gas liquids.
