Two fifth-graders at Lake Shore Elementary School have been honored for placing first in the state in the Stock Market Game for young investors at Towson State University on May 31.
Camden LaMarsh and Kyle Reandeau made up one of several teams at Lake Shore Elementary participating in the game, which was sponsored by the Maryland Council on Economic Education.
Each team was given a virtual account of $100,000. Over a 10-week period, students bought and sold stocks while watching the trends and daily closes of the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq.
Camden and Kyle invested most of their money in Rosetta Resources, which acquires and develops land in North America for oil production. The boys got an 11.9 percent return on their investment.
The Lake Shore team of fourth-graders Sydney Smith and Riley Williams finished fourth. They, along with Drew Williams and Kyle, have signed up for the Summer Stock Market Game. Drew Williams took first place in the region last year.
The team of John Henderson and Josh Keiple won first place in the Southeast Region of Maryland/D.C. by investing in IBM. Josh also placed second in the Southeast Region by investing in Macquarie Infrastructure Trust.
