I am starting a stocks challenge for the month of April. This will be a pilot program and if the pilot goes well, there will be more contests in the future. There will be prizes for the winners. I will participate in this contest to start it off.
Pick a stock that you think will have the most percentage gains from the open price of April 1st to the close price of April 30, 2008. In the case of duplicates, the first person to post will be declared the winner, so it’s best not to pick a stock that was already posted.
Pick a stock and reply to the comments of this post for the record with a link to your blog.
The company stock must have a minimum market cap of $50MM at the start of April 1st, 2008.
The company stock must have a minimum stock price of $5.00 at the start of April 1st, 2008.
The contestant can only pick one stock.
The contestant must have a blog and post the pick on his/her blog and link back to this post.
Entries must be submitted by Sunday April 13, 2008. The winners will be announced here after April 30th, 2008.
1st Prize – $25 iTunes Gift Card
2nd Prize – Choice of book from my collection
*Prizes will be shipped to the winners free of charged. If you are the declared winner, please provide your address to me via email (growingmoney (at) gmail.com).
