Stocks Challenge June 2008

By | June 1, 2008

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.

    I’ll pick MIG. Interesting concept…we all pick one stock and go with it. Who’s going to post up the gains at the end of the month?

    Sarah, I meant that I paid an extra $3.95 activation fee for the card. It was actually not worth it and the store would not allow me to return it for a refund.
