Take the $250.00 Challenge (Closed to new entries)

Periodically I will review my 401k accounts. When I checked online this morning I noticed that my Harris Interactive account was up 16.5% year to date and my Omnicom 401K account was up 16.6% year to date.

It got me to pause and think about a challenge, a little contest for the blog. So here goes.

What I would like to propose is for readers of the blog to pick one stock that they believe will go up dramatically in 2007.

Here is what you need to do:

  • Respond to the blog with your stock name and if possible symbol
  • State the reason why you picked the stock you did

It’s as simple as that.

We will do the rest.

A few things to remember:

  • You need to respond by January 15, 2007
  • You can only have one entry
  • Only one person can have a stock, so the person who responds first gets the pick and we will notify anyone who has a duplicate stock.
  • If a stock splits, we will make the necessary calculation and adjustment
  • We will use the stock prices as they were at the time the market closed on 12/29/06.

We will frequently post a leader board.

There will be at least two prizes.

The 1st prize will be $250.00 for the person whose stock goes up the highest percentage in 2007.

The 2nd prize will be $100.00 for the lucky loser whose stock goes down the highest percentage in 2007.

I will get the ball rolling with my choice. An easy one. Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Symbol COKE. They will follow up a successful 2006 with an even better year.

Take the stock challenge of 2007!
