In the ShareBuilder's Power Portfolio Contest I actually was number 1!! Woo hoo!! My very simple strategy in late February was to short the weakest subprime stocks and then I added my favorite gold-mining stock (GSS) as a cherry on top. :) The last two days of the contest saw a total collapse in NEWC and I won! I got my sharebuilder prize in the mail and now have another account to trade. :) At this moment I am sitting at #3 in the Fool vs the World contest and I would love to win that one as a $4000 prize is certainly better then the last prize. Well I wish you all good investing! [more]
Well I was doing good but now I am back below water..... sigh!
