PHS students compete in stock market game
Five exceptional students competing in the stock market game at PHS crushed previous return on investment records this year capitalizing on the “Game Stop Phenomenon” that took place in the stock market earlier this year.  In the stock market game each student is responsible for selecting and managing stocks that make up a $100,000 stock portfolio.  Throughout the course of the game students regularly make trading decisions using a variety of market indicators, and five basic strategies: Buy what you know; Avoid Front Page Stories; Know the economic cycle; Determine Current or future markets and do your homework.    
Typically, students try to achieve around an 8- 10% return on their investments in the hopes of beating the predicted 30 year average of the stock market. With many students investing early in Game Stop, seventeen students were able  to beat the average this year. Leading all investors this year were Sierra McWilliams with 200% return on her investments, Connor Schwartz, 116% return, Zac Arnzen, 96% return, Lane Remacle, 91% return and Logan Wimer,73% return.
