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.
