Well my $0.03 dividend did not push me into first place. That honor is officially for microcaptrader with a nearly 30% return. Per his previous post, he is looking to share his prize winnings at any of the Travel America locations. I was hoping for a soda and Doritos though instead. It looked like bodybag 2008 almost did his usual trick but takes second with over 20%. Bsbilleter is close behind for third with +18%. Honorable mention goes to pullinup who spurted up from nowhere this week with double digit gains and the dividend king, shiftsuper175607 with high single digit gains.
Thanks for all the participation. It looks like we are entering earnings season again soon so all of us that needed one more quarter of results to boost results can lament about the contest timing.
Thank you for your efforts Bottomsupinvestor. I enjoy these contests. As for your "soda and Doritos" request, consider it done. One soda (brand of your choosing) and a bag of Dorito's at the regular full price (plus tax) will be wailting on you at the TA location of your choice. Remember to mention that MCT sent ya!
Travel America is the stock. It more than doubled during the contest. Joes Jeans did well too with +70%. I have been interested in both of these in the past but it looks like the ships are sailing. MAPP got bought out early in the contest leaving bodybag with only two moving stocks for the remaining part of the contest.
The group's dividend stocks did not do well this time (except for shiftsuper) losing about 9% on average. The group average was positive but underperformed the S&P by about 7 percentage points.
KTCC has been edging up into earnings so we shall see the next chapter in that book soon.
