Trading Game Winners

Summer 2016 Trading Game Winners

Sean Pool, 1st Place

Year: 2nd Year

Major: Business Administration, Financial Management

Main Trading Strategy Used
: I thought that the hot tech IPO Twilio was going to perform well with it’s massive hype and following, and so I put the majority of my money into the one stock. It is funny because I only made one trade the entirety of the game, and sure enough, Twilio performed exceptionally.

Favorite Stock: TWLO (Twilio)

Therin Heryford, 2nd Place

Year: 2nd Year

Major: Economics, Financial Management
