We all know this is about bragging rights!

You asked for a contest that was shorter term ... you got it!

What sector do you think the most gains are to be made in the next 3 months?

  • The slowly but surely Large Cap Gold Producers
  • Covid-19 related companies because we all know its coming back in the fall
  • The will it ever actually happen Leveraged Silver Plays
  • The Psilocybin Mushrooms sector
  • Marijuana Sector round 2
  • Bitcoin round 3 or 4
  • A Base Metals flavor of the month
  • FAANG stocks

AHHHH so many choices and I have absolutely no idea what to choose! Anyway, I'm still working on prizes. I'm thinking the top 3 winners will win a 10 ounce silver bar or something along those lines.

Remember this is free, and just for fun. 

Here are the rules (slight change from the regular yearly contest)

  1. Pick 3 companies (must all be different) 
  2. Must be on a North American exchange (CNSX, Venture, TSX, NYSE, Nasdaq etc)
  3. NEW! Minimum price is 5 cents CAD. (If you choose one lower, starting price will be 5 cents)
  4. Currently trading (ie not halted) so we can get accurate starting prices
  5. Deadline to get picks entered is June 22nd, 2020  6:29 AM pacific time (just before market open)
  6. Starting Price will be the price at close June 19th, 2020
  7. Tag #StockPickingContest 
  8. If the company is bought out or merges etc, I take the final price before the change. I keep it simple. Don't make my life hard!
  9. No warrants ( -wt ) or anything like that, if I see them, I'll just choose the regular company shares to make it easy and fair
  10. Contest ends Sept 21, 2020 at market close.
  11. Prices are taken from Yahoo. Sometimes the price will be 1/2 cent different from other sites which can be 10% if you chose a 5 cent stock. I will take what price Yahoo gives me, if you think there is a mistake, notify me asap. Do not wait until the contest is near over - that will be too late. But to be fair, we are using Yahoo's prices solely.
  12. In the event of a tie [Most positive picks win] if still tied, a 1-month contest for those contestants (Sept 30 closing price to Oct 31 price) with same rules will take place.  If still tied, another 1month until a winner is determined.
  13. Volume of trading must exceed $25,000 over the course of the 3 months

Write your picks like these examples:

Basically, we do not care which channel you write your picks, but we do care that they get tagged to the #StockPickingContest so we can easily find them.

Additionally, you can also add them to your #Papertrades. See how I wrote mine last year.

NOTE - you MUST use capital letters. Example if I wrote BUY:FPX it would then appear like below

Best of luck everyone,  now lets go have some fun!

With gratitude,
