High School Investment Competition Winners

Congratulations to members of Saint Dominic Academy’s Personal Finance class who participated in the High School Investment Competition sponsored by Ithaca College. Stock Nation, a team led by Portfolio Manager Isabel LeCompte,  and members Lucy Carney, Isabella Devine, and Kayla Godesky, finished in 3rd place out of almost 200 competing teams from eligible schools in northeastern United States. This was a particularly spectacular feat since the extreme volatility of the stock market just prior to the start of the Ukraine invasion left many teams losing money from their original $1,000,000 virtual investment. Stock Nation’s defensive positioning allowed them to not only limit losses, but to make money during the investment period which ran from October 2021 through the end of February 2022.

The 3rd place finish comes with a $1000 cash prize split between the school and the team.

Congratulations to the members of the Stock Nation team.
