Let The Games Begin

Welcome to the 2009 Stock March Madness Tournament. Sorry for those that did not make the cut, space was limited, it was a first come first serve basis, duplicate picks & stocks under $5 were not accepted.

Rules: Stocks will go head to head each week. The stock with the highest percentage gain, for that week, will advance to the next round. Stocks will reset each round.

Tournament starts tomorrow, may the best man win.

    I always pick the wrong horse. Should have kept SLW in the stable and wheeled out TSO at these levels.

    Still love ’em both, though.

    Yeah, hey, thanks a ton for matching me up against ‘The Fly’. Whose feelings did I hurt to deserve this honor/death knell??!

    Not to mention that my pick couldn’t even go green on this morning’s spike.

    I smell another first round exit…

    Quick question for anybody; how does this work?
    Is there an elimination match-up every week?. New results on Mondays?
    edit-OK somehow I didn’t see the rules the first read thrue. Now everybody is going to know I’m over 47 1/2. Damn senility!

    Lol @dannyboy … yeah, nice pick. i was thinking to myself, “great, I’m up against a bullish stock that won’t sell off with market.” March Madness is a tricky competition, you need a solid trending stock. I mean, u can blow out your first opponent by like 30% on week 1, but when u move to the next round you can get eliminated being beat by 1% on a retracement on your stock.

    its a pretty cool twist. u gotta think in sectors, or use momentum plays that last over a month.

    I’ve been long STAR since $12 and even had some out of the $ calls. It has bought me a lot of fortune so I figured I’d roll the dice with it. I guess the fact I sold out of 1/2 of my holdings last week should have been a clue not to pick it for this but hey everyone loves an underdog!

    Oh sheeeit, is that “Obama Pete” I’m up against?

    No doubt a Ragin’ “inside joke.”

    Dannyboy, I mentioned STAR in an article I wrote for Investopedia last night. Check it out here if you’re interested, but I might of jinxed you by talking about how strong it’s been.
