In this assignment, you will make an initial purchase of publicly traded stocks in order to build your portfolio. You will have a spending budget of $10,000 to be purchased in units of 100 shares (include commission cost).  Take into consideration that transaction costs are a flat 6% of the gross purchase. Before you purchase and record your purchased stock, you will need to complete the following steps:

  2. Discuss the types of stocks or categories of stocks that you will take ownership of and why?
  3. Develop a company profile sheet or fact sheet for each stock company you have selected.
  4. Analyze your selected stock companies’ fundamentals, which should include a summary of the companies’ qualitative and quantitative data. Also include supporting data justifying why you selected the companies. Additionally,  
  5. Create a tracking spreadsheet or table for your purchases.
