TIC continues trading over summer

Opening opportunities for students to gain real-world experience, the Tiger Investment Club hands the reins to students when it comes to buying, selling, and trading in the stock market.

A unique aspect of TIC that sets it apart from other clubs at BRFHS is that when school is out for the summer, the club’s financial status can change drastically.

“This summer Tiger Investment Club invested in an Exchange Traded Fund called BAB,” TIC adviser Kris Wrobel said. Exchange Traded Funds, or ETFs parallel the bonds market. They also pay better than certificates of deposit.

New investments weren’t the only thing to change over the summer, though.

“Over the summer, some of our stocks did well, and others didn’t,” Wrobel said. Tiger Investment Club currently owns stock in Proctor and Gamble (a global company that provides consumer products such as pharmaceuticals, cleaning supplies, personal care and pet supplies), Apple, Walmart, Pepsi, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Aruba Networks and ABC (a pharmaceutical supplier).
