Get Your Picks Ready For The 7th Annual Merrill Dubrow Blog Stock Contest. Yes, There Is Money Involved And It Costs Nothing To Join!

First of all, congratulations to Kim Osterberg whose stock pick, Georgia Gulf Corp (GGC) went from $19.49 to $41.28 – an increase of 111.81%. For winning the contest, Kim will receive $300.00.

2012 was an interesting year for stocks. The average stock went up by 3.4% while 49 stocks went up and 46 went down.

To participate in the 2012 contest, here is what you need to do:

Respond to the blog with your stock name and symbol.

State the reason why you picked the stock you did. It’s as simple as that. We’ll do the rest.

A few things to remember:

  • You need to respond by 7:00 PM CST January 21, 2013.
  • You can only have one entry.
  • The stock price needs to be at least $1.00 – anything less will not be accepted into the contest.
  • Only one person can have a particular stock, so the person who responds first gets the pick and we will notify anyone who has a duplicate stock (we had at least 10 duplicates last year and I am sure there will be more this year).
  • If a stock splits, we will make the necessary calculation and adjustment.
  • If the company you pick gets acquired during the year and their company doesn’t have their own stock price, you won’t be counted in the contest.
  • We will use the stock prices as they were at the time the market closed the last trading day of 2012.
  • A link to the leaderboard will be posted in the top right corner of the blog.

First prize will be $300.00 for the person whose stock goes up the highest percentage in 2013.

I will get the ball rolling with my choice for the 2013 contest: Zinga (ZNGA). With the attention that social and gaming is getting sounds like this stock has the potential to have a great 2013.

Take the stock challenge of 2013! Get your entries in today!

Again, the deadline is 7:00 PM CST, January 21.

Good luck to all!!
