    Project Abstract


    Right now, investing has attracted younger people than ever before. Many people are putting their money into “hype stocks,” or stocks in which the share price has been driven up by factors such as social media hype, speculation, or the fear of missing out. This has been a major problem due to a lack of financial knowledge. People who want to join in on the “hype stocks” often do so because they don’t want to feel left out, and they think they could end up potentially losing their money if they join in too late. This is essentially why the SEC (Securities and Exchange Committee)exists: to oversee these events and make sure they are in compliance with the rules. 

    My study focuses on the analysis of my mentor business, Bridgeway Capital Management, as well as extensive research on Value versus Growth stocks in order to find the distinctions and similarities between the two.
