Stock Market Game



Congratulations to The Lone Moneymaker - the student team that likely ended the Stock Market Game with the highest portfolio total.

The 10-week Wall Street simulation competition ended Friday, but the totals as of Thursday showed the team from Lakota Plains Junior High School with a slim margin. But with their largest holding, Taser International Inc. (TASR), surging 14.1 percent, the game was as good as won.

In the high school division, Triple CP from Seven Hills School had a large lead among Greater Cincinnati teams playing - despite a valiant last-week rush from the Super Stockers from Ripley-Union-Huntington-Lewis High School.

But the Super Stockers 20.1 percent weekly gain wasn't the highest among the high schoolers. The $1,000,000aires from Loveland High School gained 22.4 percent in the last seven days - but still ended up in last place among the 309 local teams.
