Companies am investing in.
The three US companies that are publicly traded that I will invest in are Alibaba Group
holding, Facebook as well as FedEx Corporation.
Sources:
The two sources that I will use are New York Stock Exchange at http://www.nyse.com,
& yahoo finance at http://finance.yahoo.com.
Amount invested in each company & the reason.
â?¢
I will invest in Alibaba Group holding $10,000. The move to invest in Alibaba is
necessitated by the fact that Alibabaâ??s shares managed to double in 2017. Additionally Alibaba
has managed to increase its revenue by at least 50% annually for the past five years. This has
resulted in Alibabaâ??s shares to be among shares that are highly on demand. (Anasa, S., 2017,.
â?¢
I will invest in Facebook $5,000 since it is one of the highly profitable as well as
fast growing company currently all over the world. This is in relation to the fact that its two
billion users worldwide have ensured that digital advertising via this platform end up
guaranteeing that a companyâ??s earnings as well as sales grow at a very fast rate. This in turn has
resulted in Facebook being among the first marketing platforms for a very large number of
companies. With this in mind, it is quite evident that Facebook will keep on growing year after
year making its shares very profitable. (SANDER, 2016).
â?¢
I will invest in FedEx corporation $10,000. This is as a result of the fact that the
company has been able to go through some of the toughest economic times but it has still
remained profitable. Additionally, the company is an integral part of the current wave of E-

commerce. This implies that, demand for its delivery services will keep on rising as more &
more companies start venturing in E-commerce (SANDER, 2016).
Number of shares bought & their price
As per NYSE on 4/17/2018 Alibaba Group holdingâ??s shares were at $178.5/share. The
total number of shares that I will purchase will be $10,000/$178.5= 56 shares, i.e. 56*178.5=
$9996
As per yahoo finance on 4/17/2018, FedEx corporationâ??s shares were at $252.46/share.
The total number of shares that I will be able to purchase with $10000 will be equal to
$10,000/$252.46=39 shares i.e. 39*252.46= $9845.94
As per NYSE on 4/17/2018, Facebookâ??s shares were at $167.925/share. The total number
of shares that I will be able to purchase with $5000 will be equal to $5,000/$167.925= 29 shares
i.e. 29*167.925=$ 4869.825
