Default The Stock Market thread - just for fun

Some recent threads on stocks led me to this idea. Just for fun lets see who the top THT stock picker is.

Post your pick in this thread. Tomorrow's close (year end) will be the basis for judging overall return.

My pick - Progressive Gaming (PGIC)

If you have the time....go to investopedia.com and set up a game like the one they have on FSforum

Each person gets the same starting funds and same trading rules, you can use margin, sell short, options yaddayadda

The FS game was set up by THT user Menzie, maybe he would set up another over here, it's a good simulator.

It started almost 2 years ago, but I just joined in October

While it can be fun to "play"; it pales in comparison to the real thing.


SLB - yep, paying for my new engines

The real thing is about as much excitement as an old guy like me can handle.

Sorta like playing poker, no fun if no real money involved.
