The Stock Market Game Week in Review: Oct. 22-26

Many of your student teams are in the thick of their Stock Market Game session, and the quest to find the hot stocks or funds is alive and well.

While some of your groups may be having more success than others in generating a positive return , this week's SMG Week in Review will focus on five stocks experiencing phenomenal growth since early September. The goal of highlighting these companies is not to have your students rush to add them to their portfolios (they can if they wish), but rather to draw attention to possible trends within these companies' industries and sectors . Your students may be able to then select their own winners on the basis of further research.
