Description: The stock market’s best week in a year has restored some confidence to battered investors, but the real test begins Monday when companies start reporting second quarter profits and losses.
Questions for discussion:
- Why are profits so important at this point in time to investors?
- Examine the course of profits and share value of some of the stocks mentioned in this report over the past three years (you can use Google Finance).
- In general, how are profit and share value related?
- Do you think this is a good time to buy stocks?
