Jan. 10, 2014 - Students from King’s College recently swept all three prizes in an annual stock market contest sponsored by the Kingston office of Janney Montgomery Scott (JMS) which involved students from King’s, Wilkes, and Misericordia.
Gianna Cordasco, first row center, won first place and was awarded a $1,500 prize. Robert Moulton, first row far left, won third place and was awarded $250. Matt Elliot, first row far right, won second place and was awarded $500.
In the contest, the second annual sponsored by the local JMS office, students were asked to invest a hypothetical $250,000 and prizes were awarded for the three students to get the highest return on their initial investment during the contest period. King’s students placed 17 students in the top 25 in the contest.
