I’ve been slow to catch up with letting you know the winners of our recent holiday contest, and several folks have been asking … so I’m very sorry to have been so pokey.
But today, I’m pleased to announce the three winners of the Stock Gumshoe contest, each of whom will receive a 2010 Proof Silver Eagle coin (as soon as I get their mailing addresses). The winners in our three categories are:
Post with the most comments: Gerard Waters for his post on Axion Power.
Best overall submission: lscherrer for his post on nuclear power and Paladin Energy.
And for the most interesting investment idea: Despite the fact that he implied an endorsement of his stock by yours truly, which is a bit of a stretch, Lysander72 wins this final coin for his piece on Terrex (sorry, “OurCo”) — and yes, though it’s more of a bet than is implied by the cash position (their polymer flood EOR has to work, and we won’t know that for a while), it is interesting. I still personally prefer holding SND to get my exposure to this risky little project cheaper and with some diversification, and have to re-build my SND position after taking tax losses in December (disclosure note: I have an order in to buy Sandstorm Metals if it hits my price, and I currently own some shares).
I’m contacting those winners to send them their prizes — if you’re an Irregular and want the grand exposure that posting your opinions on Stock Gumshoe provides, you can always opine away by clicking here.
Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day for his personal accounts and finds it invaluable. Here's what he said: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and suggest ways to manage risk or improve returns. It's free, I think their free tools are great, and I think it's worth checking out -- you can do so here.
