Christmas in July Contest Update - view from the top (almost)



June 18, 2008 – Comments (9)

After a week or so I have made it to the #2 spot in the contest. Only LEGMAKER is ahead of me so far (with a similar strategy, too - mostly chemicals/fertilizer and oil drillers). But there are not yet enough of you to beat!  You still have time to enter your picks.  Here is what the winner gets:

"If there are more than 500 contestants, the winner will receive a dollar amount equal to the number of contestants, not to exceed $2,000."

As of today, there are 410 entrants. I know that there are another 90 CAPS players who think they can pick better stocks than me!  Come on out and play...

You gonna be looking and talking like sandman when this christmas season is over:)

My picks came in a night late or I think I would be doing better for the short term. I was loading the picks up I think Thursday night when something came UP!  Oh well, some things are better than $500+. Hope you do well.

You are 100% and gained 100 points so far in the contest. I wonder if CAPS has taught players something with this little diddy? I would love to have that type of action as an investor in RL for the amount of time that you had these picks. Wow. I might have to blog about this.

madcow - thanks for the comments - and the challenge! And I agree on your points about the RL performance, but I try to have a longer term outlook with my own investments.

(sorry, but I have been moving the past few days and just got my new Internet connection)

btw - I love reading your blogs.

What an ugly day for the contest! Some serious negative action going on right now. Yikes. I don't think I will be providing much of a challenge. I went with the energy sector with madcowalist and it just got wiped out completely, but we still have a little while.

Thanks for the comment:) I hope you get some laughs.
