Indicate the companies you are investing in: Select  three (3) US companies that are publicly traded.  Please use your  knowledge and experience and pick, as many stocks as you’d like. Lastly,  make sure you are practicing good diversification. Jim Cramer, Money  Manger, on CNBC, plays a game at the end of his show called “Am I  Diversified.” Check out a short clip to get a sense of industry  diversification at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3lDxexupcE.
Sources of Information:  There are many ways to find such companies and the stock prices,  including the New York Stock Exchange at http://www.nyse.com,  Google  Finance at http://google.com, NASDAQ at http://www.nasdaq.com, and http://finance.yahoo.com.
Indicate the amount you are investing in each company: Decide  how you will divide \$25,000 across the three (3) companies; e.g.  \$10,000 in Company 1, \$10,000 in Company 2, and \$5,000 in Company 3. You  decide the amount you are investing in each company. You do not have to  provide any analysis to justify your decisions. You must only provide  some reason for picking that company. For example, you might invest in  Ford because that company gets a lot of your money and you hear that  Ford is doing well, and will continue to do well.
Indicate the number of shares you are buying, and the price of the shares you are buying for each company: Once  you decide the companies and the amount for each company, determine how  many shares you can buy. If Company 1 is selling for \$42.16, then you  may buy \$10,000/ \$42.16, or 237.19 shares. But you cannot buy a part of a  share, so you decide to buy either 237 or 238. In this example you buy  237 shares, at \$42.16 per share, investing \$9,991.92. You won’t be able  to buy exactly \$10,000, or \$5,000, or \$25,000, but it will be relatively  close.
