I'm having problems with my min and percentChange working. I'm trying to print the min but I keep getting 0 and I also get 0 for the percentChange.

Your nested loop calls initial.percentChange() and initial.totalValue(). You aren't assigning the return values of those two methods.

you could have it print out the values sum, arrayStock[i].getCurrentPrice(), and arrayStock[i].getNumShares in totalValue() to see what each is getting set to.

Also you are reseting the value of sum each time it loops in the for loop. perhaps you meant to use "+=" instead of "="?

I would have to test the code or inspect it more to see if there might be something else causing issues as well.
