The market sucks. Short term: who the hell knows. Middle term: down. Long term: depends if you think America will survive. So… up? Welcome to the 200 Tacos Stock Challenge. Also, you lazy bums, this is the last week for October’s challenge, so get off your asses if you don’t want to be a Tinmaker.

Continuation of challenge into November and forward remains undecided. Also, I’d like to point out that since Hank the Bank is in the lead, there will be an award given to the winner of this challenge! Winner of the stock challenge will receive…. YOU GOT IT! ….$100 DOLLARS!*

1. Hank the Bank:
Profit: $4.73 ($104.73)
Notes: I’m not even going to pretend like I know what I’m doing any more. The market is just swinging up and down.

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: $-14.00 ($86.00 overall)
Notes: LV continues to suck. AT&T actually has stayed the same. Like owner, like LV stock.

4. The Hurt
Profit: -$19.40 ($80.60)
Notes: What CBAK giveth, CBAK taketh. CBAK is imploding right before our eyes. The Hurt still has no idea what either of these two companies are, what they do, or what their names are (confirmed!).

5. 6. 7. Last. All But Eliminated. Tinmaker
Profit: -$31.78 ($68.22)
Notes: Ladies and gentlemen, the Washington Mutual of this challenge. If you were a stock, I’d double short you. Urban and Tiffany’s…I warned you about retail. Anybody want to take bet’s whether this one will finish above $50?

*Disclaimer: All rewards for the October edition of the 200 Tacos Stock Challenge will be paid by the operator of this blog. Rewards are not payable to participants without the appropriate blogger names: Hank the Bank.

  7. WE NEED TO STOP THIS! Don’t you see what the stress has done to the hurt? It’s reduced her mental capacity to that of a primitive caveman!

    “Hurt stocks bad. money pocket good.”
