BUS 150: Introduction to Business: Stock Market Research

This course guide is to assist those students taking the "Introduction to Business Course". [Originally created by Marty Branch, Business Librarian]

Stock Market Investment Game

In BUS 150, you will complete this assignment so you can learn how to buy and sell stocks.  There are many resources within the MCOB Library as well as online to assist you.  I recommend you first locate all the resources you can within the Library holdings, government websites and the company's websites (if they have one) prior to using resources on the Internet until you become familiar with what is valid data and what is not.

Stock Analyst Reports

We have valid stock analyst reports in a variety of databases but I recommend you first start with Investor Edge from Mergent Online. 

Online Resources

Business Periodicals

We carry a variety of business magazines that are considered valid sources both online and in the library.  Also, we carry the Wall Street Journal and Barron's.  Come to the Library and review our magazine and newspaper rack and also check these databases as you begin your search.
