First, the success of the economy and industry contributed to the roaring nature of the 20s.

Massachusetts Stove Company maintained a stable profit margin for ROCE from year 3 to year 7 and still saw increases in their net income. Over the past five years, the company has strategically crafted a niche market that is difficult for competitors to enter.
At that time the company was still planting its root, creating a name to remember and finding their place in the industry. The growth stage started with the expansion of the company into other states in the US and overcoming competitors who were trying to bad them from expanding their fields. Currently Southwest is at its peak development stage as compared to competing airlines; in other words at the maturity stage. The company reached a level where they maintain steady income and still have the chance and is willing for more growth and success. Achieved a will known brand and name; I would say they reached this stage and still maintaining it since 2011 till present.

H&M are pursuing licensing and wholly owned subsidiary as a mode of entry.

So far this has been my most successful stock. The Stock Market Game has put my stress levels through ups and downs, but in the end, I have continued to make the correct decision in order to obtain a profit.

I hoped it would work in my favor. Towards the middle of the simulation I started to get worried because Tesla was down $20 per share, and Panera was down $10 per share.
