Ward decides to teach Wally a real-life lesson in economics by helping him and Beaver invest one hundred dollars in the stock market. But when the nice, solid utility stock recommended by their dad doesn't show much activity, the boys decide to take Eddie Haskell's advice and buy risky, but rising, space tech stock. Written by
Did You Know?
The boys, somewhat manipulated (guided?) by Ward's advice, decide to buy stock in a local utility. The name of the company changes considerably as the story progresses. First, at the breakfast table, Ward calls it "Mayfield Power and Electric". Minutes later, as they meet Eddie on the front porch to walk to school, Wally refers to it as "Mayfield Power and Light". Then, at dinner one night, June refers to it as "Mayfield Electric and Power". Solid, dependable stock, perhaps, but a highly variable name in the words of these actors. See more

Sometimes that kid gets under my skin.
Sometimes I think he's a very nice boy.
