    Good morning everyone and welcome to the February 2020 stock tipping competition! :)

    This month's competition is proudly sponsored by FP Markets.

    FP Markets is an Australian owned and ASIC regulated broker with over 12 years experience and 35 industry awards including Highest Overall Client Satisfaction 5 years running. They facilitate trading in equities, indices, commodities, futures, Forex and Bitcoin via their MetaTrader4 platform.

    FP Markets offer 10,000+ equities, indices and commodities across all major international markets. All equity CFDs are DMA priced and 100% hedged. FP Markets are not a market maker so their interests are aligned with that of their clients. You can go long on everything listed on the ASX and international markets and they have the widest short offering of any Australian broker.

    This month there were a number of entrants who forgot to post in the thread of their stock tip in accordance with the competition rules: @Dona Ferentes, @So_Cynical, @peter2, @Knwee2, and @fergee. I will give these entrants another 48 hours to post in the thread of their competition entry. If they choose to do so then I will add them to the February competition. :)

    Please note that you cannot rely on a post from a previous month. The post must be made in the month that you enter the competition.

    Could all qualifying entrants please check their entry and entry price and report any errors to me in this thread.

    Keep track of the results here: ASF Stock Competition Leaderboard

    Feel free to discuss the competition in this thread as the month progresses.

    It's never personal folks. I appreciate all the entries, but rules are rules and they must be complied with. :stig:

    That sort of mission statement gets you a job with the Australian Taxation Office... :Do_O
    @MovingAverage, did you mean to enter Marley Spoon or was there a bit of confusion thinking of 3M ?
    (MMM on NYSE is 3M)?
    I note 3M makes all sorts of masks and filters, including the P95 masks that are selling like hotcakes at inflated prices due to an apparent flu virus getting around overseas...
    Was surprised to see their share price (3M - MMM) not through the roof yet on the NYSE... not far from yearly low?! :2twocents

    The problem with rules is that if you don't apply them equally to all, especially when there is no ambiguity, then ultimately they are pointless. A rule has a reason to exist only insofar as it is enforced. Otherwise you might as well have no rules and just have suggestions instead.

    What the? Ok, I get it!
    The alphabet starts with A though...!
    A for @access with a cracker 126.32% rise today on EXR.
    Nice pick! Hope you held/ hold?
    Love it when members of this community make some magic moula... and tell us about it!;)
    @Miner , you got the middle letter wrong...ENR.
    You too @Parse ... EGR.
    I noticed EXR this morning, didn't know it was in the comp though! Considered an entry, but it had already done it's thing. Moved onto SMP instead...:2twocents
    Cheers.

    @frugal.rock - Yes the middle letter for ENR became middle finger for me - some X ray film I suppose :)

    The journey of all entries in the 1st week of February Monthly Comp.

    A nice turn around for you @access from last month. :xyxthumbs There has been some nice moves by some during the week but we have some work to do to catch @access.

    @access you are making the rest of us look like idiots. :wacky: In my case I can do that perfectly fine without your help. Great pick so far for the month. I hope it stays on course for you!:xyxthumbs

    End of Week 2 update of the journey so far of all entries in the Monthly Comp.

    @aus_trader is chasing @access hard for the lead and they have it between themselves at this stage, everyone else is saving their energy for the last week apparently. :rolleyes:

    Slow and steady definitely do not win the race alone. Slow, steady, and deliberate wins the race, when punctuated by occasional sprints. It's not enough to make daily, measured progress .. if it's not deliberate progress. If you're not moving in a meaningful direction, then failure is a likely outcome.

    (or, if you're standing still, you are probably going backwards)

    End of another week with only 1 left to go. Below is the visual journey of all entries compared to one another so far in this month's competition.

    @access and @aus_trader have had it all to themselves so far but @fergee is finally making a run, will there be enough time? Good luck to all.
