Back in July, we looked at the New York Red Bulls' players and how they compared to stocks from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the NASDAQ Stock Exchange. Today we're revisiting the idea, but with a new twist. If the players could use their salary to buy their associated stocks from July, how many shares could they buy? For this, we used stock quotes from Google Finance, and only for the players we looked at last time. We also used the 2015 Guaranteed Compensation from September as the cash reserve they can work with. Here's the results.
|Player||Market||Symbol||10/21/2015||2015 Salary||# of Shares|
CEO: Sean Davis
Davis, due to the penny stock nature of SD can purchase 253,246 shares (no one else can break 100,000). Not bad for a $97,5000 investment. If the stock goes to $0.78, then Davis can double his investment. There's a lot of room for growth when you are near rock bottom.
Small Time Shareholder: Lloyd Sam
It's hard to buy a lot of shares of a company when each share costs $255.52. Sam should be good for some more in the future though.
Bradley Wright-Phillips: Thrifty
With the highest amount of money to work with ($660,000) to work with and a cost of $12.72 per share, he's not breaking the bank to get in on the action.
