Harriton Stock Picking Contest

Hello fellow Harriton students,

The Harriton Banner Business Section is honored to introduce the Harriton Stock Picking Contest for the spring of 2021. Each student will be able to choose 3 different individual stocks and submit them (by email) by May 15.

Students will have a month to see their stocks grow and the three stocks will be averaged. The winner should not look for cash gains but rather percentage gains in their three choices.

Pick wisely and do your research. Your small investment of time could help you to understand and build future investments. After a month, students will be able to see the final leaderboard with the top 5 entrees and the top 5 stocks with the most growth.

We wish you the best of luck,

Your Business Editor – Harrison Zuritsky
