This is the last of the three stock journal assignments you will complete during this course. For this assignment, you will add your work for Week 10 to your previous work from Weeks 3 and 8, following the instructions below. Two templates have been provided for your use.

  • The Weeks 3, 8, and 10 Stock Journal Project Excel Template 1 [XLSX] you began in Week 3 is where you will enter your chosen companies, the share prices, and the number of shares you will be purchasing given your budget of $25K.
    • Note: The above Excel template has been provided for your use for the stock journal assignment. You will notice that there are directions for your work in Weeks 3, 8, and 10. When submitting your assignment for each week, you may use the provided Excel template above, your own Excel template that you create or a Word document that you create as long as it communicates the requested information.
    • Note: There are locked cells in the Excel template. The cells have been locked to prevent the formulas from being disturbed. The cells that you will need to use to complete this assignment are not locked. You may create your own templates, however it is recommended that you use the templates provided.
  • The Weeks 3, 8, and 10 Stock Journal Writing Assignment Template [DOC] you began in Week 3 is where you will write your rationale/summary.

Download both templates. Then, complete, save, and upload both templates at the same time to Blackboard when submitting your work.
