Pac-12 Stock Report: Week 1

The NASPAQ stock market is the Pac-12 version of a stock exchange, a  pioneer in electronic screen-based sports security trading. With twelve teams and approximately 50 publicly traded players, it has more trading volume than any other sports stock exchange in the world.

As the new season begins, we remain steadfast in our commitment to lever operational excellence and innovative analysis to penetrate new markets whether geographic or across conferences, and to develop new articles and ideas to meet growing fan demand and to bring powerful new articles to our readers. Every day, our markets deliver on the promise of competition. We are confident that our sports model will further our growth in an increasingly competitive sports marketplace and will ensure that Pac-12 markets remain the most attractive in the world.

Most of our savvy fans consider the NASPAQ weekly report to be the most important sports research tool available.

The most volatile stock came in the players market from Kenjon Barner (KENJ), who saw a 100% increase in his stock to $50. He was listed as LaMichael James' backup, but mostly known for his role as a punt/kick returner last season. With James out for pushing his girlfriend, Barner made the most of his opportunity by eclipsing last season's touchdown totals with four rushing and one through the air. I would expect him to have earned at least a few more carries per game this year and if he outperforms LMJ he could eventually turn into the starter.

I would advise buyers to purchase stock in UCLA'sAkeem Ayers (AYER) ending up as the conference's defensive MVP. He was all over the field for the Bruins racking up 11 tackles, one sack, a pass deflection and recovered two fumbles. He'll have plenty of opportunities for tackles this year, because the only place you saw the UCLA defensive line was in the Kansas State rear view mirrors as they gave up 350 rushing yards. His stock is up 15 points, but the bullish UCLA defensive stock is dropping.

There were some surprises in the positional markets starting with USC's defense (USCD). Some of our analysts were bullish on this stock as it IPO'd at $100, but watching Hawaii dance around them like the girls on Dancing With the Stars was not reassuring. I couldn't tell what was worse, the tackling or their secondary that gave up 459 yards passing - 200 of which came after the starter was injured. Their poor performance dropped them 50% after surrendering 588 yards to the Rainbow Warriors.
