So what s a share l.jpg
So what’s a share?

  • Last week we bought some ‘celebrity shares’. Before we continue trading in shares we want to know what shares are!

Lesson 2: Birth and death of a star

From pizza shares to business shares

  • Imagine you buy a pizza with 3 other friends. You each pay a fourth of the pizza and so you each get one of four slices.

  • Many companies are owned in the same way. They are split up into thousands of ‘slices’. These are called shares.

  • Each share entitles you to a part of the company’s profits. This is called the dividend.

  • Why do you think companies would sell shares? What do they gain?

From business shares to celebrity shares l.jpg
From business shares to celebrity shares

  • Celebrities cannot be owned and they don’t make profits… so these imaginary shares pay dividends that are based on press coverage.

  • Why have shares in celebrities? For the fun of it and to help us learn about company shares. Business shares and celebrity shares behave in similar ways!

Lesson 2: Birth and death of a star


Where do shares come from l.jpg
Where do shares come from?

  • In the business world, they are offered to potential buyers in an event called an initial public offering (IPO).

  • In Celebdaq, the same happens… but you have a say in who gets listed (put on) and de-listed (taken off).

  • On the Celebdaq homepage go to the Traders’ Choice Vote: + list. Discuss who you would like to see listed next week and vote for them! Go to – de-list. Vote for the celebrity you would like to see booted out!

  • Keep track of the Traders’ Choice. If you own a de-listed share you will lose your investment.
