Did you think I was kidding? Or maybe you think all of this is just a coincidence...
Back in December of 2010, in the post ZLC, you piece of junk I told you about ZLC's (Zales) incredible performance (+145%) ever since chimpcontest #2 had ended, three months before.
Why I told you about it? Because ZLC was my pick for chimpcontest #2, and I did embarasingly poorly with it.
At that time, I also tried to make a point that I wasn't really wrong about ZLC: It's just that chimpcontest ended at the wrong time (there is just no way that my timing was bad).
In comment #6 of the same post, I even suggested that chimpcontest's wrong timing most likely means that one should invest in S (Sprint) as soon as chimpcontest #3 ends (as S was my pick for chimpcontest #3).
And do you know what happened?
Chimpcontest #3 ended on February 3, 2011, when Sprint was at $4.35. Today, Sprint is at $5.92, which is a nice 36% gain from it's $4.35 price.
Now, I know many of you think 36% gain in 3.5 months is nothing spectacular, but when you take into account that S&P500's return during the same time is less than 1% (pretty much flat), then I think 36% looks a whole much better (p.s. I think even Silver did worse than +36% in the last 3.5 months).
So what do you think?
