Hi everyone!

Hankthebank told me that because I’m currently in first place, I get the privilege of writing this post to update you all on what’s going on with the stock challenge! So here it is–

I’m winning! Why? Because I’m awesome! AND I have a profit of $18.39.

These people are losing:

Hank the Bank        
Profit: $13.15

Looks like everything is on the ups for HanktheBank! However, looks like he’ll make making some changes. HanktheBank is going to sell AAPL and buy one share of SDS. We’ll see if this helps him or hurts him! For my sake, lets hope it hurts him.

The Hurt
Profit: $13.14 

Looks like picking only YHOO has proven to be a good, safe bet for the Hurt! 

Profit: $3.81        

TruckwithouttheKey is the only player with losses this week. Both MO and TTES are down. 😦 

And there you have it! The player’s names are listed in order of how close they were to being number 1!

More details on why I am in the lead are located here. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go count my fake riches now in the Turkmenistan style. Happy trading everyone 🙂

Mo Money, Mo Problems…oooohhh woooohhhh….

So it begins again… Back by popular demand, welcome to…. The 200 Tacos Stock Challenge: Part 2! Not much to say here, but let’s do some quick analysis of our players and what they’re carrying.

1. Hank the Bank
Initial Holdings: AAPL, C, GM
Strengths: Smarter than the entire field combined.
Weakness: Got lazy down the stretch (probably due to boredom and lack of challenging opposition) and didn’t execute to close out the game.
Strategy: Majority of portfolio is betting on blue chip Apple. Safe bet. The rest is betting on the most distressed companies in the most distressed sectors. Nice balance, wouldn’t you say?

2. Tinmaker
Initial Holdings: COKE, BBY, LIZ
Strengths: N/A
Weakness: Tends to rely on retail for some reason, which was the sole reason for an embarrassing performance in the last contest. Looks to be more of the same this time around.
Strategy: Buy names you see at the mall, regardless. RE. GARD. LESS.

3. Truckwithoutthekey
Initial Holdings: MO, ABT, BMY, TTES
Strengths: Knows how to Google “good stocks.”
Weakness: Still doesn’t know how to find “good stocks.”
Strategy: Huh?

4. The Hurt
Initial Holdings: YHOO
Strengths: Willing to lie and manipulate. No scruples, dignity, self-respect, integrity, etc. to hinder desire to win.
Weakness: Incapable of winning.
Strategy: Randomly pick ONE stock, and hope to get lucky.

So far, The Hurt is in the lead with about a 6% pop today because someone equally as dumb thinks it’s a good idea to try to raise money and buy Yahoo. Dollar to donuts Yahoo sinks within the end of the week. That’s all for now, ingrates.

More Scrooge after the jump! (more…)
