The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to formulae, recipes or other people’s opinions.

4. Hank the Bank:
Profit: -$10.82 ($89.18)
Notes: Kind of standard rise across the board. I think that’s a large enough head start for you guys. Now I’ll start trying a little.

This is the 200 Tacos Stock Challenge.

1. Hank the Bank:
Profit: $3.95 ($103.95)
Notes: Not much to say here. Was one day early on the DXD trade, but still prescient nonetheless. DXD double shorts the Dow.

2. Kel Kel from Hell Hell
Profit: $0.00 ($100.00)
Notes: Has yet to make her picks. Thanks Hurt. (Also, just goes to show, cash under your mattress is the safest investment right now. That and gold teeth. Go big or go home, GRANDMA!)

3. TruckwithouttheKey:
Profit: $-8.78 ($91.22 overall)
Notes: LV sure sucked today. AT&T was no better. Like owner, like stock.

4. The Hurt
Profit: -$10.62 ($89.38)
Notes: What CBAK giveth, CBAK taketh. The Hurt still has no idea what either of these two companies are, what they do, or what their names are (confirmed!). Life’s fair.

567 Last. Tinmaker
Profit: -$26.42 ($73.58)
Notes: Ladies and gentlemen, the Washington Mutual of this challenge. If you were a stock, I’d double short you.

  4. whos laughing now!

    a) it is a question, if i’m not mistaken. so it should end in a “?”
    b) it is “who is laughing now,” therefore, you should add an “‘” to make it “who’s laughing now?”
    c) unless “whos” is an actual name, in that case, it should be “Whos,” but that’s just splitting hairs
