I’m quickly realizing that no one really wants to read about the stock market based on google analytics and the fact that everyone keeps saying “wait, what’s your goal this month?” So, instead of boring you with play-by-play of this past week on stock market studying, here’s some things you can easily scan that I think are interesting whether you want to own stock or not.
As of Friday, September 18, these are the 10 highest priced US exchanged stocks:
10. Allergan Pic (AGN) = $295.29. They’re a pharmaceutical company.
9. Blackrock (BLK) = $308.87. They’re an asset manager that provides guidance to individuals or financial professionals or institutions.
8. Biogen Idec Inc (BIIB) = $314.67. They develop, manufacture, and market innovative therapies for patients with neurological, autoimmune, and hematologic disorders.
7. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN) = $540.26. They deliver stuff you don’t need by drones.
6. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) = $550.36. They are a bio-pharmaceutical company that invents stuff for medical terms that were too long to type.
5. Google Inc Class C (GOOG) = $629.25. Google split their shares and I’m not exactly sure why but I know the Class C means you don’t have voting rights. Rumor has it by doing this it allows founders the ability to stay in control.
4. Google Inc (GOOGL) = $660.92. They remember my every move on the internet and surprise me with ads for things they know I want to buy from Pottery Barn.

2. Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) = $729.48. They are the reason I wear a size 6 instead of a 4.
