    On the results page, you have my stock computed correctly, but labeled incorrectly.

    I am long NLY, it is labeled as short.

    Thanks,

    Short covering. Don't worry - the shorting has started again already and you'll be back to 0 by the end of the week!

    i didnt even realize that. but its funny that no one said anything when my pick was down 50% on day 1.. or when it was up 15% but when its up 100%, people have something to say..

    but you know what... if you want to, go ahead.

    to me its just a game and you guys want to say something when im ahead by 100% (but not down 50% or up 15%) then id rather not win it

    I think because it's up over 100% it drew some attention to it and made people realize the pick price...

    I could care less... Nice pick regardless!:top:

    It was a good pick and an honest mistake on the rules. I think people just didn't notice before - as you didn't notice when you picked it. Maybe we can both win! Maybe neither of us will anyway!:boxing:

    Sorry wallstreetsedge, I didn't notice your pick didn't close at $2.00 or more on Friday so it will be disqualified. I'll leave it in the chart though because it will be interesting to see how it does, looks like it will "win" at this point. Great pick anyway, maybe we should have a contest for pennies.

    wse, this isnt the first time a pick has been DQ'ed.

    price and volume are the 2 criteria

    I am sure that WSE didn't realize that the rules didn't allow stocks trading under $2. I wonder why it seems funny to him that nobody said anything when he was down and then pointed it out when he was up. I realize this is the opposite of just about every post he has ever made, pointing out all of hit great picks and glossing over any others, so I can see how he would be surprised by this.
    Of course it's just a game, but anyone who enters every week and then says that it doesn't matter if he doesn't win or more absurdly that he'd rather not win, is being disingenuous.
    Frankly, I am shocked, judging by his posts on every topic and his commentary, that WSE doesn't win every week.

    thanks.. i did know about the$2 rule but i forgot all about it this time for some reason. last week or the week before, i picked brlc and realized it was under $2 so i changed my pick. i guess since tma was around $2 when it came across my radar i just didnt think twice about it.

    fair is fair and whoever wins, should win regardless if i as disqualified
