Stock Picking Game
Before we get started, if everyone could check out my Twitter Page, I would appreciate it.
I am looking for 10 people to participate in a competition that I am going to hold here on my blog. Basically it is going to be a competition to see who can choose the best stocks. The catch is…. you have to choose 2 stocks in total. Now that may not be so hard, but the hard part is; one stock can be anything you want, the other stock has to be classed as micro-cap (market cap <300 million). That is where the hard part will be, trying to pick two quality stocks. All dividends are included in the capital gains on the stock. The competition will run from 18th May to the end of the 2017 year, so get your tips in now!
I will be weighting 60% on the any choose stock and 40% micro-cap stock.
|1||Pick Any Stock||You have the choice to pick any stock you want, regardless of marketcap size.|
|2||Pick Micro-Cap Stock||You must pick another stock with a marketcap of less than 300 million (USD).|
|3||Dividends||Dividends are included in the return on investment.|
|4||Stock Picks||You do not have to actually own any of the stock, pick anything you want.|
|5||Stock Numbers||For this exercise, only one share of each stock will be used.|
|6||Currency||All prices will be displayed in USD with live conversion rates for those who do not pick stocks inside the US.|
|7||Weighting||The stocks will be weighted at 60% any pick stock and 40% micro-cap stock for scoring purposes.|
|8||Scoring||The performance will be based off the % increase or decrease plus dividends, not off dollars increased.|
