Stock Picking Contest 2020?

All, is there any interest over a stock picking contest for 2020? I don't seem to find any posts in the forums.

Please let me know who's interested, I'll throw my hat in the ring.

For those who have participated in the past, if you could provide some guidance on how the process works, rules, etc. it would be great.

Cheers,
Ryan

I'd be happy to participate myself once again.

The rules were that you have to pick twenty stocks with an average daily total greater than $50,000 and price greater than $1; we didn't subtract anything for slippage. You have to submit your twenty stocks by market open on January 2, which is when you buy them; you hold until market close on December 31. There are no prizes, but there is conversation! You can submit more than one group of stocks. We also like to track Eddy Elfenbein's picks for comparison. The picks should be in a clearly labeled public live strategy.

Thanks Yuval, I'll be sure to submit my picks before the date.

US stocks only, or CAD universe(s) as well?

Top 20 stock picks contest for 2020

motivational quotes from Woody Allen to inspire more participant to participate in 2020 20 stock pick competition.
==================WOODY ALLEN ============================================
I made the statement years ago which is often quoted that 80 percent of life is showing up. People used to always say to me that they wanted to write a play, they wanted to write a movie, they wanted to write a novel, and the couple of people that did it were 80 percent of the way to having something happen. All the other people struck out without ever getting that pack. They couldn’t do it, that’s why they don’t accomplish a thing, they don’t do the thing, so once you do it, if you actually write your film script, or write your novel, you are more than half way towards something good happening. So that I was say [sic] my biggest life lesson that has worked. All others have failed me.
=======================================================================

This 20 stock picking idea is running for last 3 years, It is 4th Year. It will be nice if we have same rule and 20 stocks picks.
It is an investment journey year by year tracking the progress.

Thanks
Kumar

Re: Top 20 Stock Picking Contest 2020?

I'll try it this year. I have to admit that I didn't put a whole lot of effort into this so if it does well I attribute that more to luck than skill. Anyhow large to micro swinging for the fences :)

Just my $0.02 ... Actually I need that back for my port.
