Stock Market Simulation When investing in the market, I proceeded to choose stock that had potential. I chose stocks based on if they were making money and what I knew about them. In week 1, the first stock I bought was Yum, which owns Taco bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut. I thought the stock would turn a profit for me, but I actually lost a decent amount of money. This was a big mistake because I failed to recognize to diversify my stocks, meaning I should have invested in multiple different stocks.

So I sold DTO and bought back Amazon stock. I stuck with Amazon for the rest of the simulation because it was still going up in value. Also Amazon had gone up $100 for each
