Share Competition

 The share competition that we take part in is the Rensburg Sheppards fantasy share race which is run in conjunction with the Belfast Telegraph.  Our team this year is made up of Thomas and Emily Drummond.  The team have invested the notional sum of £100,000.  

 The competition is exclusive to schools in Northern Ireland. First prize for the winning team is £500 in HMV gift vouchers. While second prize is £250 and third prize is £100 also in HMV vouchers.

You can check out the latest league positions by clicking here.

Also updates are published in the Belfast Telegraph every Tuesday.

Carrying out research into up and coming companies is an important part of being successful in the competition. This can be done by following current business news stories on the television, in the newspapers or on business web sites.

Even keeping your eyes open as to what is happening in the high street can help you spot companies or products that are in the ascendency. This may then be likely to filter through to improved share price on the stock market.

There are business newspapers in Room 237 which feature companies that journalists and analysts consider to be rising stars. Ask Pat Lenny to point you in the right direction.

As with all your business decisions you should also consider business ethics. Are there certain companies you feel it would not be appropriate for you to invest in. For example, how would you feel about investing in a company that makes profits from selling military equipment?

These are some of the questions you will have to discuss as a team.
