New Releases:

- The two articles I picked are: Solar stock selloff creates buying opportunity and SolarCity, Vivint shares fall despite rising market share.

- Any news could affect the company. It just depends if it'll be a negative or positive impact.

* The articles talk about how the stocks changed through time and how the company is doing overall. Stocks have decreased a little through time but nothing really drastic.

Summary:

- Yes, because you never know when a stock will go up. It's a guessing game just like gambling.

- We all started with $100,000 and I'm down about $2,000. I lost most of that money from Netflix and Amazon. I'm making some profit with VSLR.

- I've learning that you have to really be careful in what you put your money into and how much money you put into it. It's really hard to know in the stock market to know if you're going to be in the hole or not, but it's a part of human life.
