October 13, 2012 – Comments (17) | RELATED TICKERS: F , O , X

Hello, some of you may know that I started a contest-

http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/dividend-contest/756130

All rules can be found in the above link.

To see your results so far click on-  FoxForce5contest

note-I made all 31 contestants favorites, BECAUSE WERE ALL WINNERS, YAY!!!

(blurrrgh,cough,cough...mm.... excuse me, just kind of threw up in my mouth for a second there.)

The reality of the situation is there will be only one winner based on stock gain. Just for hits and shins I'll calculate how much a grand invested turns into but that's just cause I'm a geek like that.

15 of the 31 participants are in the green based on stock gain, I'm hoping that improves and we gain all-star status (already have the avatar picked out:)

THE STALWARTS-

1. Bravobevo at +61.67 with Coldwater Creek. (lipstick was applied with a 1:4 reverse and some analyst named Piper prognosticating profit proliferously, proceed at own peril)

Many of you are probably wondering how Bravo finds these pennystocks that proceed to pull down massive gains. Simple answer- He's Bravo freakin' Bevo and your not ;)

2. Thecherryz +12.65 with TrueReligion Apparel (nice jump, the company basically put itself up for sale, let's hope for a bidding war)

3. Momentum21 +12.55 with PDLI. Holy Cow! would you take a look at that chart, MoMo's gonna' have to splain' this one since I suck at biotech. (there is a $20.8M deal with Axoge floating out there)

4.TMFUltralong +9.40 with Chimera (13.5%) yield, (4.75) pe, 13.40M shares short. This might jump to the top spot at some point.

5. Rd80 +7.57 with SAN. (8.6%) yield. Will fluctuate with the daily soap opera that is known as the Eurozone. Still a nice pick.

THE LAGGARDS-

27. Starfirenv -4.64% with LODE, (ok,I'll admit that I instigated this pick since I own it and bug him about it as he lives fairly close.) Start up miner, might finally be getting the permits.

28. 4melody -6.30 with MSFT. Can't really go wrong with Mr. Softy, somewhat range-bound $20-$40 past 4 years that I've followed.

29. iamlard -6.80% with CTEL Telecom from Hong Kong (what could go wrong...?)

30. proteinhunter3pqc -7.21 with NOK (sorry no comment since I did'nt get around to looking at this, maybe PH3pqc will enlighten.)

31. Melachasm -8.81% with KBH. Would'nt be a contest without a homebuilder thrown in.

Thanks to all participants, gotta admit it's kind of nice being in a contest that's not sporting the whirlygig hat.

For any of you that also frequent the boards make sure to check out blesto's weekly updates here-Randomness ;-)

Cheers.

Hey Harry

What happened to my "dividend adjustment"?

Constest Rules:

"After your pick is made your cost basis will be lowered for every dividend received. I'll also adjust for splits"

I received a $0.30 per share dividend in September.

Not that it really matters, just trying to understand how this is supposed to work.

Since "Russ" grabbed San before I could, I got stuck with a "day trader" plaything, and need all the help I can get. :)

Have a great weekend.

I think CAPS makes the dividend adjustment on the ex date, not the pay date.

^ Yep.

Missed it by that much.

Don't feel bad Teacherman I've actually missed a few ex-dates in real life, costing me real life fiat currency.

Geez Harry - woulda thought that I would at least get a mention since I am beating Ultralong with my ELLI pick!  (Besides he meant to pick CMI not CIM!)

Oh sorry - I guess UL really did mean to pick Chimera!  But I think ELLI will still beat CIM!

One thing I do that makes checking the scores easier is click on the blue stock gain link at the top and Caps will format it from 1-32.

You actually were in the top five for a day.

As far as the CMI/CIM mixup- totally my fault, luckily I added the correct pick for Caps.

Momma always told me that no good can come from blogging after 2 A:M.

Cheers.

Thanks for the link! Had not seen the article.

Glad I reinvest all dividends and buy incrementally on a weekly/monthly basis!  

Sharebuilder does not charge for reinvestment of dividends when you pay $12.00 a month for account maintenance.  ~ mkp

You realize of course that I am actually going to win this contest!  The reason is simple.  After Bravo picked Coldwater, I invested in it with real money (Yeah, sneaky...I know)

So why did I do that?

Simple answer- He's Bravo freakin' Bevo and your not - I mean and I'm not!

Hi Mary,

Blesto and I were just discussing your pick on the Randomness board-

http://boards.fool.com/rax-30541403.aspx?sort=whole

I invested in it with real money (Yeah, sneaky...I know)

That is sneaky, congrats :) I had the same thought but my brokerage wouldn't offer up the shrs so I picked up MTGE instead.

Bravos pick is covered in the latest edition of the FOXFORCEJOURNAL_

http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/the-foxforcejournal/797640

Great to hear from you and I hope your busted wing is fully recovered.

Cheers.
