Lets Have More Contests!
I am a big fan of trying to win prizes so I thought it was worth mentioning there is a stock picking contest that is awarding a modest prize for a brief write up/performance of a stock in your region of North America over the next year. I like how Canada is included in the mix since it is often our forgotten friend to the north. Since I'm in the northeast U.S. I have a pretty good selection of companies to choose from.
I think it would be cool if CAPS did something similar contest-wise at the company level or if they could give us a screen to filter stocks by geographic location, that would be handy too. The local information that people possess can be a valuable tool to discover the undiscovered companies ahead of Wall St.
Back to contests, I know last summer I ran a Haiku stock picking contest that combined the literary and financial acumen of the community here into a single event. I think we had a good time with it.
Maybe we can do something similiar again this winter since its so damn cold out. I've heard rumblings HarryCarysGhost is volunteering to run another contest. :o) Right Harry? And whats this about a new plasma TV for the winner? Or more realistically maybe it should be called Notaplasmatv contest,
Happy New Year,
