Get Ready to Be CAPS Champion of the World
I warned you yesterday that the CAPS Champion of the World contest was coming, and tomorrow it will be here. I want you to enter, I want you to tell your friends to enter, and I want your friends to tell their friends to enter. If all that happens, someone will be declared Champion of the World, a few others will earn free Global Gains memberships, and the entire CAPS community will be smarter about global investing.
With that as prologue, let's get to the details...
To enter the contest: Every Thursday for the next year I’ll post an Official CAPS Champion of the World Contest Idea on this blog compliments of our Global Gains research team. These will be both longs and shorts and many of them may be stocks you've never even heard of.
To be eligible for the quarterly prize, you need to (i) rate at least one Official CAPS Champion of the World Contest Idea each quarter and (ii) at least one stock from the International Stocks tag that you find on your own each quarter as well. These ratings may be either outperform or underperform, and your rating of the Offical Contest Idea does not have to be the same as the outlook pitched by our team (we love dissent at Global Gains). Once rated, these picks cannot be ended.
Again, there will be a new Official CAPS Champion of the World Contest Idea every Thursday on my blog starting tomorrow May 13 and every quarter we'll award the top performer a free 1-year membership to Global Gains (winners will be announced here on my blog on 8/14/09, 11/16/09, 2/15/10 and 5/14/10.) On May 14th, 2010, we will also announce the person who did the best overall as well, and award them a Grand Prize that will include a 2-year Global Gains membership, a Fool ballcap, a surprise souvernir from the upcoming Global Gains trip to China, and most importantly, the title of CAPS Champion of the World.
If you want to be eligible for the Grand Prize, you can enter at any time, but you will need to make picks for each quarter you are active in the contest.
Sound good? Click Here to enter the contest...and don't forget to tell your friends.
The Golden Buddha wishes you luck...
