Your data science income has ballooned, and you need to find somewhere to invest $25,000 that you have saved over the last year. You have a savvy investment friend that is kind enough to tell you ten stocks he has been watching during the last year. You will need to visualize the last five years performance to help in the in the conversation with your friend.
Your friend is going to give you his tickers at the beginning of your half-hour meeting with him (he is a busy friend). You will need to build an
.Rmd file that will build a suite of visualizations rapidly for your conversation. You will need a series of stock performance graphics using
library(ggplot2). In real life, you might use one or the other, but this task is built to help you move from
tidy objects for visualization.
Specifically, in class the Tuesday following this case study you will get 5 - 10 ticker symbols and will need to build visualizations quickly that allows you to answer questions about the stocks in a few seconds.
This reading will help you complete the tasks below.
