Our group worked really well together, even if we had some major challenges. For example, we lost a team member and that team member was in charge of one of the stocks, so we were missing some information on it. But we solved this problem later on. I think our group did a good job splitting jobs and working with no distractions. When we had to work on the power point, one person did that. One person worked on the graphs, and the last person did the folder. And in the end we all got our work done. I think this shows that we can work independently and get our work done in time. We also work well as a group because when we discussed what stocks to buy, we each got a chance to express our opinions about each one, and in the end we decided what to buy group. To conclude, this was a great experience and it was real fun.
