Thanks for sharing...I was just wondering how you were doing in the standings....

I was just curious if anyone else was playing. Moved up to 10%.

I put half my portfolio into 1 stock way at the start and haven't checked it till just now... Top 9%

Funny thing is, my college went to CNBC's studios in NJ a month ago for a live broadcast of some show on friday nights where they give recommendations for the contest.  It was such a joke.  It was practically like an infomercial to get people to sign up for the contest.  They had some 'experts' on the show who would give opinions on stocks. 

Is it just me, or does anybody else find that watching CNBC too much actually hurts your investment decisions?

I occasionally pick up an idea that I run through my normal evaluation process.  It can certainly be hazardous to your financial health, especially if you do not learn to drown out the stupid stuff.

Most of the time I have it on mute, and sometimes even turn it off completely.

Agreed!

Who do you think is hotter, Erin or Becky Quick?

...you didn't even list the Money Honey as a choice...

Bartiromo is a pig compared to Erin and Becky...

Where are the chubby chasers on this board?  Stand up and be counted!  I'd take Sue Herera.

Do you think she has a mustache?  If she doesn't now I bet she will in 10 years!

I have Bloomberg on and I'll pop in some old tapes I confiscated from Jones...portfolio review tool...just to make sure I'm recommending the right amount of bar chart allocation. Lots of fun...I think the blonde with Big eyes who has an evening show after Cramer..is hot...

Joeda,


Erin...definitely Erin.  I like Becky but there is something about that gap in her front teeth...

Anyone like Bertha?  I tend to stick with the white chicks but Bertha isn't bad...
