1.4 Individual Share Portfolio Review assessment brief

1.4.1 Interim Individual Share Portfolio Review (40%)
1.4.2 Final Individual Share Portfolio Review (60%)

This assessment runs all the way through phases 1 and 2 (with an interim submission). The final hand in is during Phase 3, and is worth 30% of your Phase 3 grade.

The vast majority of the world’s largest companies are “publicly listed” companies (in the UK called PLCs). That means that, through one of the stock exchanges such as

London, New York or Shanghai, investors can invest easily in those businesses. Individuals such as you and I can invest alongside institutional investors such as

pension fund management businesses which own huge investments in companies.

In this task you will each have £10,000 to invest in a publicly listed company of your choice. You will monitor the performance of your investment and those of your

group members over several months. It is only a fictional £10,000 unfortunately but will the value of your investment increase or will you lose money?

At the end of this project you should be able to:-

• Better understand an organisation’s published financial results;
• Construct charts and diagrams and clearly interpret them;
• Use published share price data and articles from the business pages of newspapers to evaluate the performance of a portfolio of shares;
• Present your analysis effectively in writing.

You will work with your Phase 1 group on your shares even after your groups have changed in later phases.

Learning Objectives

This project will help you:

• To recognise the concept of the business organisation operating within the parameters of a changing external environment
• To demonstrate an awareness of current issues, facts and events in the national and international business world
• To identify different legal forms of company
• To interpret data presented in various forms
• To write an academic essay with appropriate referencing
• To manage your time to meet deadlines and obligations including those to other members of your group

The Task
You have a nominal £10,000 with which to buy shares of a company that MUST be listed on the London Stock Exchange. Try to invest in a company that you think will do

well over the next six months and give you a good return on your investment, even though making a profit is not a key objective of this assessment.

You need to be able to justify your choice of company. In order to do this you should carry out some research on a range of companies using PEST analysis. You will

need this information for your interim report.

As a group you will put your shares together as a portfolio and you must then keep a joint record of the current price of your shares and the total current value of

your portfolio using an Excel spreadsheet to monitor the performance of your group’s portfolio of shares. You should record the share prices and create charts to show

the values graphically, (experiment with the sorts of chart that you can produce to find the best one for this task).

Every week you will be expected to check on the performance of your individual shares, adding your information to the group’s spreadsheet. In Phase 2 you will also

have an opportunity to sell your share and use the proceeds to invest in a different company. You have to decide whether that will give you better growth over the

period of your investment.

The assessment is concerned with how you arrived at your choice of initial shares, your analysis of the progress of your portfolio, your judgement for keeping – or

selling – the shares and how well you justify your decisions. In order to do this, you should try to include more pieces of information than just the closing share

price to make a chart as informative as possible. What other information might be relevant? You will also need this information for your interim and final reports.
