TheFoxForce5Contest is OVAHH!!!
Well that was fun, much obliged to all the participants. A special shout out goes to my buddy blesto for cranking out the midweekly updates on the Randomness board-
Welp we managed to avoid the beanie hat, that's why I set the rules up like I did. Hey I love a nice stock trading in single digits skyrocketing as much as the next guy, but you can't have a portfolio of just high risk fliers. Thus the safety net of dividends.
Here's how the contest started-
I planted 5 fiat based two dollar bills on the homeless dude that I won betting on I'llhaveanother in the derby. Oddly enough I don't see him anymore, I suspect he compounded the sudden windfall and retired in Florida. (Sidenote I was in line at the liquor store one day, and the dude pulls out a wad of cash you could choke a horse with).
Also made a donation of 5 fiat based ten dollar bills to the Salvation Army. Your probably thinking- Harry you cheap bastage, you probably made fifty beans in dividends while typing this. First I wish, but as I've stated before- I'm not a wealthy man but aspire to become one. So that involves living within one's means and giving only what one can afford
Our rank was 32.79 50,572 out of 75,247 (wow, who knew that many people played caps. Hey all you wallflowers out there throw a rec my way once in a while, Just Sayin' ;)
31 of the 41 picks ended with a positive stock gain.
And our All Time Best-
Woohooo!!! Astounding cheers from the audience, 5 elephants juggle 12 monkeys, rockettes kick up their heels, Walt Disneys frozen head flutters above.
Mega's pick of GNW went from $5.25 pr/sh to $12.59 for an outstanding +139.81% stock gain. (now if they could just get thier act together and start paying a dividend;)
I happen to know that Mega rolled large in RL (just like Scruffy would). So that is even more reason to bow down to Mega and his stock picking mastery.
Again thank you to all the contestants, final results can be found here-
I made the executive decision to leave all picks open. I think this is a really good watchlist and own MTGE for myself and FSC for my parents, based on my doing research for the contest. Maybe I'll do a yearly recap just to see what happens with our picks. Also might do a FOXFORCEJOURNAL for the remaining ten stocks if they hit the green in stock gain.
That's all for now, but always remember-
STAY FOXY MY FRIENDS>>>
