Fast Money: Investment Literacy for Tomorrow's Wall Street Traders
Thornton, Joel B.
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v30 n1 p3-15 2011
The author describes how investment research workshops were used to prepare students at Texas A&M University (TAMU) to compete in the 2008 Equitrader Collegiate Challenge. The Equitrader Collegiate Challenge is a simulated equity trading competition that enables students to match wits against the market and other contestants. This paper describes an interactive approach to investment literacy, which guided students through a logical process of utilizing professional-level investment resources, such as Morningstar and Thomson One Banker, to conduct investment research and analysis for stock selection. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
