    That looks right!

    I assume we're letting Booyahoo short his picks. I love to see bears get burnt! :wink:

    He can play them short but the winner of the game is not the biggest loser even if you call it ahead of time. The winner is the person with the highest % gain; if his picks have the highest % gain then he will win.

    You like to see bears get burned? or contrarians? Remember, I am the only one in the competition who is playing the game by shorting. Everyone else is long. I may be a smug bear. But you might just be a bull in a room fulla bulls! Veeeeeeery dangerous. :wink: 8O :lol:

    Just think the actual "[pretend]money where your mouth is" test is going to be fun.

    Nothing wrong with being a bear in general.

    Never heard of D J Stifel, but glad they started covering CBI, because it's my biggest holding in real life, and has decimated my portfolio the past few days. But not as fast as it's improving it now. Nearly 600 today, which puts me back in the black in real life, though still 4% down in Jan. contest.

    Edit: Unless something drastic happens last 25 minutes, gonna bag $1200 today on this baby.

    After playing around with the stats, I have a deeper appreciation for your weekly summary Triplebuy, unless you have better tools than me. That's a lot of work. Mid-week, most of us are up double digits, a few are treading water, and one is begging for this to be over. Oh, if only you didn't have that minus by your picks, you would be about second or third, BOO.

    x-

    Thanks for the props. I was suprised at some of the picks, considering that many of them are Cramer recommendations.

    The funny thing is that you are getting excited about this competition and you really have no clue about what is going to hit you! :lol: Today is 1/11 and we aren't even 1/2 way through this thang, but I will designate you the o-fish-al game announcer. It'll be interesting to see how the tone in yer voice fluctuates as the month wears on. :lol:

    Why does the tone of your voice never alter regardless of how wrong you are?

    Thanks for posting the results again TripleBuy; I know how much time it can take up calculating all those picks. Your weekly updates really add to the game and make it much better.

    Re: Weekly Standings - through 1/13

    C'mon now, you have me in second place for the biggest gainers on stocks priced above 100? I think I am actually down 7.8% on ISRG not up 7.8%. Let's give credit where credit is due! :D

    Not really, I think my return actually improved this past week! :lol: I said to give credit where credit is due. My credit won't be due until the close of this competition! :lol:

    :lol: Well I dunno. Right now I am in second last place and I'm gettin giddy! How could I not be giddy with some of these chart setups I be seeing right cheeeya! I sho hope you isn't long BOOM in real $$$. BOOM gonna give new meaning to da BIG BANG BOOM theory! :lol: We know da Fri low is gonna go! But how low will she go?!! :?: ISRG? If that pig doana hold 115 you will see a series of gapdown moves. WFMI is really my only concern but if I am lucky some idiot anal-yst will come out wit an upgrade to send it to levels it won't see again for 5 years. Just like HANS. Watch dat pig drop like Jimmy Hoffa did over da side o da boat. No wait, Jimmy Hoffa is buried in the endzone of the Meadowlands. :D First destination for WFMI will be 60.00 based on the last major trend top on da 1 year chawt (split adjusted). See dat on da 1 year chawt? Can you believe that the frenzied idiots were so eager to chase da Cramer pump that they gave it a 20% premium over where it should have traded to?!! I sho do! I'm glad Cramer is around. It used to be that shorting was a high anxiety activity. Now you can just play the Cramer pump and short anything stock trading near a 52 week high that he pumps. watch what happens to MYOG after this run is through. I'm thinking 39ish. That should be da max fo this move. Then it is on its way to 15.00 minimum. Ahhhhh, worry free investing. Learn it! Live by it! :wink:
