MadStocks Contest 2008

2008 MadStocks.com Stock of the Year Contest

Update: The price of your stock is determined on January 1. These are the same rules as last year, however I should have made the rules clear due to new readers. Feel free to change your pick if you like. Your pick must be in by December 31 @ 11:59 pm.

It's that time of year again, it's time to see if you have what it takes to pick the MadStock of 2008. The same rules will apply from last year: the stock has to be over $10 dollars, and no duplicate picks. Please leave your pick in the comment section.

On the theory that the best way to win a contest like this is to pick a distressed stock that if it comes back is likely to mount a significant comeback, rather than picking a momentum stock like everybody else, my choice is

Hey, there's a typo in your spreadsheet. Cost is 10.02. Merry Christmas.

mdawsz said...

Ragin' Cajun said...

you are correct.

Stewie said...

Ragin' Cajun said...

Same rules from last year. I should have made the rules clear since I have new readers.

Please enter me in the contest.

My pick is YGE.

Thanks.

j.M said...

TITN

Brett said...

RIG

ShortDaBull said...

Put me down for SPWR

LargeBill said...

RC,

I'll play by the rules this year and pick a stock over 10 (barely). Put me down for RACK which should more than double by Dec 2008. If it falls to below 10 by 31 December this year (which could happen due to folks locking in losses) I'll submit another stock (MCXH).

For those who like the under 10 specials. . . . take a look at BXC. BXC has huge upside, but may not get there for over a year as building is potentially in a temporary funk.

Johnson said...

DSX - book it. Johnson.

Ragin' Cajun said...

My pick will be UA

Stewie said...

OK. RC since my last pick CFC is under $10 and that isn't allowed. I will go with HOKU. cheers!

mdawsz said...

RC, I'd like to change my pick to TITN.

mdawsz said...

Well it looks like someone already took that name so I'll have to go with PRGN. Yes, that's my final answer.
