The Nati Chart Busters of Indian Hill busted ahead in the fourth week of the Stock Market Game with one of the highest short-term profits in game history. The students from Susan Schonauer's marketing class more than doubled their investment in Industrial Services of America Inc. (IDSA) in the one week they held the stock.
After shares of the small Kentucky garbage hauler inexplicably soared in unusually heavy trading late last week and early this week, the students sold out most of their position - locking in a firm $26,370 profit - a 108.4 percent gain.
Steel 'N' Stock from Mount Healthy North Middle School held on to its lead in the middle school division as its investments in U.S. Concrete Inc. (RMIX) and Iron Mountain Inc. (IRM) saw modest gains.
The Adult division has a new leader in Debbie Reyonds, who has enjoyed a strong 66 percent return in her 1,000 shares of Escalon Medical Corp. (ESMC).
