How Wittenberg U.'s Portfolio Makes the Grade
How did your stock portfolio do over the last eight years?
In "Wittenberg University's Wall Street Connection," MainStreet goes behind the scenes of WittInvest, a student-run fund that has seen its portfolio's value grow by more 50%, since its inception in 2000.
So what are these college stock-pickers bullish on now? Here's a look.
From the MainStreet article:WittInvest currently owns shares of General Electric (GE) and consumer goods company Proctor & Gamble (PG). Why? The large international market was a major draw for investing in these two companies, says Dale Williams, 23, a four-year member of the club. "We believed they would continue to be successful even if the U.S. fell on tougher times," says Williams. Overall, large-cap companies are attractive because "students have a better awareness of these, and it stimulates more interest in their selection," says Lowell Stockstill, a Business Law professor at Wittenberg University, who advises the group.
