Assignment details:
Read 5 Wall Streett Journal articles published between May 1 and June 24.
For each article, write 2 paragraphs: (1) article summary; (2) your thoughts and/or analysis of the issues discussed in the article.
For each article, clearly indicate article title and publication date.
Put your write-up for all 5 articles into a single Word or PDF document.
At the end of your document, create a reference list with article title, author, and link to the original article.
How to choose articles for the report:
The articles must be related to investments, so please avoid general news articles, political news, culture news, opinion pieces not related to finance, even news about particular companies or industries unless you can make an explicit connection to how the news affect investors. Suitable topics include financial markets, financial institutions, stocks, stock indexes, bonds, interest rates, inflation, mutual funds, ETFs, exchange rates, commodities, macroeconomic indicators, investor expectations, consumer confidence, IPOs, volatility. Use your best judgment in determining whether a particular article fits the scope of our class.
What to write:
In the summary paragraph, concisely provide the necessary background information and then summarize the main points that the author is making. In the analysis paragraph, you can focus on a few of the following approaches: challenge the assumptions that the author is making, challenge the validity of the author’s conclusions, relate the author’s argument to the concepts learned in the class, generalize the conclusions of the author beyond the scope of the article, ask follow-up and what-if questions related to the article. As our course progresses, you are expected to increasingly link what you have read to the concepts we have covered in the class.
