    Where's TripleBuy?

    Leading in the monthly challenge seems like a distant memory now, and I have been wondering what happened to TripleBuy. I miss his weekly updates. Maybe vacationing in Bimini or some other exotic tropical paradise with his winnings?

    Thanks TCG - I took a look at PRLS early this week, bought in and picked up 10% gain Monday to Friday (planned and pre-programmed exit point) and it's appearing to still be going higher.
    Good job.

    I'm in PRLS for the second time. Copped a profit and got back in a little early this time, day before valentines day @ 6.75, so back in the green finally.

    Investingmoron is currently winning with a gain of 3.4% for the month. CHIC really pulled through for him.

    Buyondips is second with 1.5%

    Everyone else is negative, with an investment average of -3.1% Oh dear!

    Well maybe tomorrow everything will change!!

    My problem with the contest is that I rarely look at stocks above $25.00. I spent about 1 minute picking UBS and INTU using MSN's stock screener. The way things are going today, my overall % might be 0.00. Hopefully March will be better.

    Yes, we didn't do well last month. But at least I'm glad I actually purchased a few shares of TIBX. Congrats to InvestingMoron!

    The entry for my pick, PGR was wrong. PGR has never been at $141.40. The entry price for PGR should be $104.60. That's a 2.7% gain

    Thanks Englishman!

    I didn't mind losing a little for the challenge. The bad part is I decided to put my money where my mouth was and actually own some BTU & FIZ. I feel confident that these companies will do OK in the long run, but we did have a bad month. I sold my WFMI a few weeks ago but may get back in.

    Sorry TCG - I just took Triplebuy's entry prices that he posted a month ago. You're right - it never got anywhere near $141! It does indeed look like it was $104.60.

    This would mean you had an overall gain of 8.4% for the month making you the winner by a mile!


    CORRECTION: 1st place: Thechartguru 8.4%



    I'l run the monthly challenge this month I'll make sure I get the entry prices right!
