Seems professional stock brokers and financial advisors are struggling lately with educated guesses on what stocks to buy on behalf of their clients. Maybe they should invite Flood Brook Union middle schoolers Jeremy Loewer and Zack Harding to lunch so they can pick their brains. The two were part of a stock market game their social studies teacher Mike Eppolito offered as an elective at the beginning of the school year, said the Manchester Journal.. They initially had $100,000 to invest and could borrow an additional $100,000. “I think it’s important for students to have an understanding of how the stock market works,” said Eppolito. Apparently their strategy worked as the boys amassed the most “money” of all Vermont middle schools game participants.
