Catching up with FoxForce5Contest.



January 22, 2013 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: F , O , X

Greetings and salutations,

With much due dilligence, our marketing team of Gull & Bull presented the title of the latest FF5C blog. Using an algorithm based on the most rec'd blog posts in the past week.

The cost to the contest- a sum total of 1,000 South Arican Zar's (well worth it IMO).

Now on to official contest business-

Ended the day with a Caps score of 78.01.

29 of 41 contestants were in the green based on stock gain.


1. Ramping up capability enhancements and outcomes using a tennis mitigation strategy to impact global mindset.

2. Ongoing assurance of the product architecture being functionally equivelant and parallel to the pardign shift. Postulated by the use of management dialog technology.

Thank you all, and cheers to our continued success.

Mr. awallejr,

Thank you for your reply, and the contest acknowledges your concerns. If I may explain the thought process behind my trickery I would hope you would understand.

I want'ed the contest to mimic real life as close as possible, now if everyone had tried picking the next high flying penny stock the contest would be wearing the beanie hat for sure. Personally I keep my own portfolio with about 90% dividend payers, with a few pennys thrown in.

You do remember the ChimpContests, that was flat out embarrassing, Caps players are much better than that.

Since there is no monetary gain for first place, the focus should be on overall profile performance (you guys are just spending my money for charity, and hopefully having some fun along the way)

If I may quote fellow contestant tekennedy-

"Ask not what your contest can do for you.

Ask what you can do for your contest."

About the cross-dressing situation.

Luckily I don't think I be needing to do that.

Megashorts in the lead at +77.71%

Bravo's in second at +71.25, he had the nice spike coming out of BK, but have you researched Clearwater. Horrible long term investment.

I would say that I'll be sporting my regular apparel come August-

Cheers ;)

Just saw your q about dividend adjustments in the SAN comments.  Copying reply here.

The dividend adjustment isn't a straight subtraction - if it were, the basis for CAPS scoring could go negative on a divvy payer and cause the system to blow up in a highly random and spectacular fashion - kind of like a five-dollar shake in a blender with no lid.

The adjustment is made as if the dividend payment was reinvested. Something like:
New Basis = Old Basis/[1 + Dividend/Stock Price] where stock price is at the time the dividend is issued.

About the divi adjustment...What rd80 said, or I think the Fools that run CAPS use an algorithm.


Smart Remarks?

Well speaking of the Chimp his last contest I picked NCT but he eventually thumbed it when the stock was peaking at around $8.  Think it was selling in the $4ish range when contest ended.  But now look at that pick where my thesis for it had it restarting dividends:

Short term penny stocks really are the way to go for these contests.  Understandably no one wants to sign up for a five year contest heheh.
