My daughter tells me that she's enjoying a finance course, so we're going to do a little exercise. 

She's going to pick two or three stocks that she likes, write down why, note the value of each on a given day, then track them for a month or so.  At the end, if she's 'earned' money, I'll give it to her, and if she's 'lost' it, I'll take it from her bank account. 

This is my way of making it a little more real. She likes it.

I think this is a good idea. It does fly in the face of common opinion which says that indexed funds beat out everything else. But she has a good chance of making some money...if you give her enough time. So what school did you graduate from????

Manhattan College, but my interest in finance came from an MBA program I didn't finish at University of South Dakota.

So you and the Supreme Court Justice??

Yeah, though she came the next year, I think.
