Quantcast
I have 26 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Antioch, does your dad realize that in order for him to win this, MSFT will probably need to double in price from here in less than 6 months? Currently at $206, MSFT would have to be a $3,000,000,000,000 (that's a 3 trillion dollar) company in terms of market cap, to trade over $400.

(of course the longer you wait, the less hope you'd have of actually winning) Unless there are any objections, I would just go by what the rules say.

    Also, to your other question, the price would probably best be taken as the closing price on the day it was picked here. But if you're tracking it, I would say it's probably best left to you to interpret the rules and decide which price to use. If you do pick the wrong price, you can always correct it later, but I have a feeling there won't be much objection if you are off by a day or a dime on this one.
    I think the best solution will be to use price at the time of Antiochís post. I will use 1 min chart opening price at that time to determine this. How should I apply the 20% penalty? By adding 20% to the starting price, by taking 20% of the closing price or by taking 20% off the percentage gain? Any thoughts?

    For now, I will apply the penalty by adding 20% to the starting price. John Henry, when you read this, please clarify how the penalty should be applied if Iím wrong. I will be posting standings after market close today. Some real surprises this week.

    Default POY Contest Standings as of Market Close July 3, 2020

    I forgot that the market is closed today in observance of Independence Day, so I will go ahead and post the standings for this week. It was an exciting week as Mimoís NEXCF blasted into the lead, dethroning PACO, who has been in first place since the very earliest days of the contest. Congratulations, Mimo. Itís tight though, and I have a hunch there will be many changes at the top before this is over. Also a warm welcome to Antioch and his dad, who just joined the contest. They have to pay a 20% penalty for joining late, but donít rule them out. Remember, Antiochís dad and Antioch finished 1-2 last year, so the competition just got tougher. There are some pretty incredible gains at the top of the standings right now, but if youíre still under water, donít despair. Mimoís NEXCF was hovering near the bottom just a few short weeks ago. Now look at it. Letís see what surprises are in store for us next week. Good luck everyone.

    Hi BlueWolf,

    I received a text asking me to check in.

    Sure you could add Antioch6 and Antioch6ís Dad.
    For consistency we usually take the closing price of entry date and take 20 percent of the closing price. Thanks for the weekly updates.

    MSFT at 206.26 on 07-02-20
    EA at 133.84 on 07-02-20

    Happy 4th of July everyone. Please be safe.

    Hey, have anyone heard from Skiracer?

    Default POY Contest Standings As of Market Close, July 10, 2020

    What a week. The biggest shocker was the blowout performance of Mimoís pick, NEXCF. Congratulations, Mimo, for not only being the first to double your investment, but also for almost doubling the performance of the number two pick, Riverbabeís CRWD. Congratulations to Riverbabe for moving into the number two slot after Pacoís amazing pick, REGN, pulled back a little. Donít rule anything out, however. We still have almost six months left and anything can happen, as we have seen. Mimoís lead may seem insurmountable at this point, but we were saying the same thing about REGN just a few short weeks ago. Stay tuned and have faith.
