Technology Stock Game

Construct a hypothetical stock portfolio of five companies from the technology sector. One of these company names will serve as the name of your group. Following selection of your group name, prepare a brief written profile of that company for presentation at the following class. That profile should include a description of its products and technologies, its location and company URL, and a brief synopsis of why you selected it. Cite all sources used!

Example: Bitstream
