Kaimuki High team
comes on aggressively

Kaimuki's gain puts it behind
the leader in the aggressive division

Kaimuki High Team HI405196 jumped 14.6 percent to $111.236.67 to make a strong run for the top spot in the aggressive division of the Hawaii Stock Market Simulation.

Pacific Island Bible Church Homeschoolers Team HI405129 held onto the lead, but with a slim $1,470.72 margin.

In the growth division, a 13 percent surge by Moanalua High Team HI409342 bumped Pacific Island Bible Church Homeschoolers Team HI409085 from the top spot.

Lahainaluna High Team HI407041 was the only team to lose ground last week, but maintained a comfortable lead in the income/growth division.

Two teams from Moanalua Middle School -- both with gains of more than 8 percent -- elbowed their way into the lead of the elementary division, and are separated by less than $650.

On Feb. 14, about 2,000 Hawaii students in grades three to 12 began the stock market simulation for the spring semester. Teams of two to four students each invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks, bonds and mutual funds over 10 weeks.

Students participate in divisions based on their investment styles to learn how the market system works.

The Hawaii Council on Economic Education and the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs run the program. The Star-Bulletin has posted result from the top teams each week, and will run the final winners when they are announced.
