Cocacola vs Pepsi

Decide on a company to invest in and a company in the same industry to compare against your investment company.  Create your group’s company thread.  Click on Create Thread and then list your primary company and comparison company in the subject line.  You will reply to this thread for all future posts.  Only one member of your group will create this group thread.  Example:  Based on the above example of Home Depot vs.   Lowes, your group’s initial thread subject line would read Home Depot vs.   Lowes.  Once you have identified your investment and comparison companies, record them on the board.  The first group who records the companies on the board is the group that can use the companies for their project.  No two groups can use the same companies for this project.  

Step 3.  You are investing $100,000.00 into your primary company stock  In the          Quote Lookup, enter your proposed company.  You will find the current trading market price in bold print under the company name on the next screen.  Now calculate how many whole shares of stock you can buy with this $100,000.00 based on the current market price per share today.  You can’t buy partial shares, so be sure to round down, not up.  For instance, if your price per share is $45.25 per share, you would take the $100,000 initial investment / $45.25 per share = 2209.944751381215.  Note you can’t by the partial shares and you can’t spend over $100,000, so the number of shares you will purchase is 2209.  You will be spending just a little less than the $100,000 you were given to invest.  Note, you will only be buying shares in your primary investment company.   You will not buy shares in the comparison company
