Question: Indicate the companies you are investing in: Please use your knowledge and experience and select three (3) US companies that are publicly traded. Make sure you are practicing good diversification. Jim Cramer, Money Manager, on CNBC, plays a game at the end of his show called "Am I Diversified - Mad Money (By Jonathan Kingsbury)."

1. Sources of Information: There are many ways to find such companies and the stock prices, including the New York Stock Exchange at nyse's website, Google Finance at google's website, NASDAQ at nasdaq's website, and finance.yahoo.

2. Indicate the amount you are investing in each company: Decide how you will divide $25,000 across the three (3) companies; e.g. $10,000 in Company 1, $10,000 in Company 2, and $5,000 in Company 3. You decide the amount you are investing in each company. You do not have to provide any analysis to justify your decisions. You must only provide some reason for picking that company. For example, you might invest in Ford because that company gets a lot of your money and you hear that Ford is doing well, and will continue to do well.

3. Indicate the number of shares you are buying, and the price of the shares you are buying for each company: Once you decide the companies and the amount for each company, determine how many shares you can buy. If Company 1 is selling for $42.16, then you may buy $10,000/ $42.16, or 237.19 shares. But you cannot buy a part of a share, so you decide to buy either 237 or 238. In this example you buy 237 shares, at $42.16 per share, investing $9,991.92. You won't be able to buy exactly $10,000, or $5,000, or $25,000, but it will be relatively close.
