The team composed of Niam Morar, Jordan Bradstreet, and Neil Sawh showed the highest profits in the history of teams at The Miami Valley School and were the unanimous #1 pick of the judges, representing four financial firms, at the University of Cincinnati. The team turned $56,000 profit on their $100,000 investment. The middle schoolers’ strategy was to examine and purchase three low cost stocks, each under $5.00, and buy 6,000+ shares of each.
