An update on the saga that is my son’s school Stock Market Challenge. Contest ends early next month.
Junior: Dad, my principal said my name over the loudspeaker today.
Dad: Busted in the girls locker room?
Junior: No, he said I am winning the stock market game for my entire grade. Not just my class, but for all of 7th grade.
Dad: That’s awesome brodie. Has your teacher said anything about your recent trades?
Junior: Last week he asked if it was a mistake that I put half my account into $SNAP. He said he heard it was a bad stock and was going to go down a lot. He was trying to talk me out of it.
Dad: Ha. Sounds like everyone on the internet last week. Has he said anything else since?
Junior: Today when he was looking at charts, I asked him to pull up $SNAP. When it came up, he started laughing in front of the class.
Dad: What was so funny?
Junior: He said “Jaxon put half his account in this stock on Friday at $19.10 and the stock has gone up 20%. He bought it right at the bottom! That’s just crazy!”
Dad: When it hits $30, tell him you want to teach the class for a day.
Junior: Nah, you can though. He wants to meet you.
