The May 2008 Stocks Challenge ended with only one participant, myself. I pick Nvidia (NVDA) and it netted a gain of 20.19% for the month. But since I was the only participant, I win by default anyway. I took the $20 cash and bought myself a lot of ice cream.
I will give the Stocks Challenge one last chance. And for this month, I am offering a brand new VISA Gift Card at $25 value (I paid an extra $3.95 activation fee for the card), plus lots of prizes for the other winners.
