Which company had the widest range of share prices over the 5 years?

Pilemin Airlines Share price range 1.45 - 180 = 35p

RentaBanga 1.55 - 170 = 15p

Rupt Bank 0.45 - 1.65 = £1.25

Cash Casinos 0.40 - 1.20 = 80p

Stackem Supermarts 1.55 - 2.00 = 45p

 

Which year had the widest range of share prices?

2002 Range 0.4 - 1.95 = 1.55

2003 0.55 - 2.00 = 1.45

2004 0.85 - 1.75 = 0.90

2005 0.75 - 1.85 = 1.10

2006 0.9 - 1.65 = 0.75

 

Between 2002 and 2006 what was the approximate total change in share

prices for all companies?

Total share price 2002 = £5.80

Total share price 2006 = 7.20

Percentage increase in price = (Change in price/original price) x 100

= (1.40 / 5.80) x 100 = 24.1% = + 25% to nearest 5%

 

If the proportional change in share price for Pilemin Airlines had been the

same as that for Rupt Bank between 2002 and 2006 what would have been the

value of Pilemin Airlines shares in 2006?

Share price for Rupt Bank 2002 = £0.45

Share price for Rupt Bank 2006 = £1.65

Change in share price for Rupt Bank 2002-06 = 1.20 / 0.45 = 266%

Price of Pilemin Airlines shares in 2002 = 1.45

Increase in price of Pilemin Airlines shares 2002 - 2006 = Price in 2002 x Change in

share price for Rupt Bank

1.45 x 2.66 = £3.86

Therefore price in 2006 = original price plus increase in price = £1.45 + £3.86 increase

= £5.31
