Closest guess wins. Winner gets written acknowledgment and recognition before your peers on MU Yahoo Message in a thread.
Thanks for organizing this contest. Though I did not win, I am happy that the closing price was still within the range of my prediction. My missing it by 22 cents is not too bad, as the participants were very strong and did very well.
This is the ridiculous nonsense I've seen yet. A contest on closing price! What happened to the huge short squeeze that will drive this price up? The volume was high, and yet the price movement was very unimpressive. And, this despite all the "analysts" upgrades. What does this tell me? It's toppy, and people are not willing to pay more, as they have more sense than the "analysts", bloggers, posters, etc. You can't fight the tape, and the tape is telling you that. Otherwise, this stock would have been up another, say $2, today, over the high of AH yesterday, which was 24.26. The fact is, the high today was 24.50, briefly. That's a short squeeze? If all those here who INSIST that this stock would fly today on a short squeeze, you were absolutely wrong. The more down ratings you give me just simply prove you can't handle the truth, so go ahead.
With all due respect, I worked hard putting my reputation on the line to win this important contest, and I won't have you taking this moment away from me.
Look at the last time MU gapped up like this. Give it a few days, wait for a DOW up day. You'll see MU fly higher.
Contest seems to be coming down to three entries though anything can happen in the last half hour:
1) othermendacity at 23.93
2) veristaninvestments at 23.80
3) three8s2013 at 23.50
Veristan looking VERY close to on the button like so close it could win both prizes on the Price is Right… But let's see how the market closes.
Contest is now closed to new entrants.
Good luck to all entrants.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
This contest is now concluded.
MU won't budge more than 2 points in any 24 hour period. Just too much in out in out trading to do that. The chart has never shown such a move possible in the last few years. I'd like to be wrong so the move up is higher.
