Give your students the So You Think You Understand Stocks test. They will quickly see they have a lot to learn. We found many teachers managed to answer only about half the questions correctly. Stock Market Basics really is about the basics. This is not a program about puts and calls, options, short selling, and P/E ratios. Instead, the program explains: - What is a stock? - What's the difference between a stock and a bond? - Why do companies issue stocks? - Why do some companies pay part of their profits to shareholders as dividends and others hang on to the money? - What is a portfolio? - How to buy stocks-broker, do-it-yourself, mutual fund. - Do shareholders really own the company? - What is a ticker tape, how did it start, and how can you read it? - When you buy a stock, where does the money go? - What is stock split? - Is the stock market a game to be played? - What are risk and volatility? - What is the efficient market theory that won a Nobel Prize? - Is it true that a blindfolded monkey throwing darts could make money in stocks?
