    It looks like I took the gold this time with bodybag2006 taking the silver and valuebimbo taking the bronze. Fourth place is taken by newcomer fruitsalad and honorable mention to shiftsuper and pullinup.

    The group average did excellent in this bull market gaining over 7.5% vs about 3% for the S&P. That is very impressive but not surprising for the quality of participants on this board.

    I hope to do another one soon and will let everyone post it on the board. I didn't buy any new positions on anyone#$%$ this contest but wish I did. Thanks for everyone's participation and good luck in the real world.

    What about those pumping in the mid teens while selling their holdings and not once suggesting that valuation has gotten ahead of itself?

    Exactly the opposite yet exactly the same.

    Yes I am. It is still my largest position with HIMX second. I think the next couple of quarters should be good. I don't know what the overall market will do or the effect on its stock price. Both companies have great pipelines but SIMO is a little further ahead with it hitting the bottom line.

    Only one more week to go. I still have a firm grasp on the lead and bodybag has regained second place. The group average is doing very well compared to the S&P with a +5% premium. Final results won't be out until late next Sunday or Monday morning since I will be away on a bicycle trip until then.

    This is really looking good. I was hoping to buy back in at some point. Don't know if I will ever get the chance.

    Would you also recommend not replying to suspected paid pumpers also???

    I am glad you are back. I was getting a little worried when you did post there for awhile.

    Thanks for the short links.

    Great to hear from you mawcheck. I got to DKS in a round about way. Big 5 Sporting Goods came up on one of my screens. Looking at their products on-line I was not very impressed. Most stuff seemed like lower end junk that you could buy at any discount store. They looked undervalued so I bought some stock figuring they were making money regardless if I like the merchandise. I remembered that I followed DKS at one time but never bought. I am east of the Mississippi, so I have personal experience in #$%$ stores and thought they were a decent place to buy things in which I am interested (mostly outdoors rather than team sports). I bought a little stock and already sold since I am somewhat nervous about the market in general and would like to concentrate on some holdings in which I have a high degree of confidence. I think they are a good bet and still have a decent growth potential as they begin to open store out west. Of course, recently was a good time to buy on weakness unless it continues.

    I bet you are sorry you asked!!!

    Pullinup up is correct. I take the calculate the % gain for each stock using the starting price and the ending price plus divi and average all 3 picks.

    For your pics, I have listed in the reply below individual returns of :
    microcaptrader KTCC 5.11
    microcaptrader STLY 0.77
    microcaptrader HTM -2.85
    which averages to 1.01.

    I am using starting and current prices for each as follows with no divis on these:
    microcaptrader HTM 0.6382 0.62
    microcaptrader STLY 2.6 2.62
    microcaptrader KTCC 10.57 11.11

    Percentages are calculated as follows:
    ((final+divi)-start)/start * 100%

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I am missing something or got something wrong.

    Keytronics reported this last week and improved the contest return from below zero to over 5%.
    I caught up with dividends this week and have noted those after the return prices below. Let me know if I missed one.
