Stock Transaction Program

Last month Joe purchased some stock in Acme Software, Inc. Here are the details of the purchase:

  • The number of shares that Joe purchased was 1,000.
  • When Joe purchased the stock, he paid $32.87 per share.
  • Joe paid his stockbroker a commission that amounted to 2 percent of the amount he paid for the stock.

 

Two weeks later Joe sold the stock. Here are the details of the sale:

  • The number of shares that Joe sold was 1,000.
  • He sold the stock for $33.92 per share.
  • He paid his stockbroker another commission that amounted to 2 percent of the amount he received for the stock.

 

Write a program that displays the following information:

  • The amount of money Joe paid for the stock.
  • The amount of commission Joe paid his broker when he bought the stock.
  • The amount that Joe sold the stock for.
  • The amount of commission Joe paid his broker when he sold the stock.
  • Display the amount of money that Joe had left when he sold the stock and paid his broker (both times). If this amount is positive, then Joe made a profit. If the amount is negative, then Joe lost money.
