THIS COULD BE THE FINAL TRIP.
ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET IN OUR
NEWS. BUT HOW MUCH DO YOU
REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE INS AND
OUTS AND UPS AND DOWNS OF THE
MARKET.
JORDAN BURGESS IS LIVE WITH
HOW SOME ARE GETTING A HEAD
START ON PICKING STOCKS.
FOR MANY OF US..WATCHING
THE STOCK TICKER AT THE BOTTOM
OF THE SCREEN IS AS BORING AS
WELL...WATCHING THE STOCK
TICKER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE
SCREEN. BUT THOSE
INVESTMENTS ARE LIKE THE
GREASE IN THE WHEELS OF
COMMERCE. SOME BELMONT
STUDENTS GOT THEIR HANDS DIRTY
TODAY FINDING OUT HOW THEY
TURN.
THEY'RE STUDENTS SHARING A
CLASSROOM WITH THE BULLS AND
THE BEARS. BUT IF THERE WAS
EVER A LESSON TO TAKE STOCK
IN..IT'S THIS ONE. THE KIDS
GET AN OPPORTUNITY AT
CHRISTMAS TO SAY I NOT JUST
GET AN X-BOX I WANT STOCK IN
APPLE TODAY. AN APPLE FOR
THE TEACHER TOOK ON AN
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT MEANING FOR
THESE BELMONT STUDENTS.
THESE SOON-TO-BE TEENAGE
TRADERS....GOT SCHOOLED ON THE
STOCK MARKET COURTESY OF THE
CENTER FOR ECONOMIC EDUCATION
AND FINANCIAL LITERACY AT
WRIGHT STATE'S RAJ SOIN
COLLEGE OF BUSINESS I ALWAYS
TELL THE STUDENT TO BUY LOW
AND SELL HIGH. BUT ALL
KIDDING ASIDE...THE LESSON IS
MEANT TO GIVE STUDENTS
SOMETHING THEY CAN BANK ON
WHEN IT COMES TO FINANCES.
IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS..OHIO
HIGH SCHOOLS WILL HAVE A
FINANCIAL EDUCATION
REQUIREMENT...BUT THE LEARNING
GOES FAR BEYOND THE CLASSROOM.
IT'S ABOUT CREATING WEALTH,
IT'S ABOUT RETIREMENT, IT'S
ABOUT HAVING A BETTER LIFE BY
INVESTING IN THE STOCK MARKET.
SOON THESE STUDENTS WILL
HAVE A CHANCE TO SHOW WHAT
THEY CAN DO IN THE MARKET.
AS PART OF A STATEWIDE
CHALLENGE..THEY'LL HAVE A
HYPOTHETICAL HUNDRED THOUSAND
DOLLARS OF THEIR OWN TO INVEST
WITH TO SEE WHO CAN GET THE
BEST RETURNS. ALREADY
THEY'RE SOUNDING MORE LIKE
HEDGE FUND MANAGERS THAN HIGH
SCHOOLERS. I'M GOING TO
LOOK INTO WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE
THINK NOW...WHAT I THINK IS
BEST. MAYBE INVEST IN
SOMETHING THAT INTERESTS ME
LIKE MY FAVORITE BRANDS.
WE'LL HAVE TO SEE HOW THEY
DO. I'M SURE SOME WILL LEARN
THE LESSON THAT THE WRIGHT
STATE FINANCE PROFESSOR TOLD
ME. THE ONLY THING
GUARANTEED ABOUT THE
MARKET..IS THAT IT'S GOING TO
FLUCTUATE. REPORTING
