Welcome to the first stock tipping competition of 2011! :)

Joe,

Do you enter the SP as the opening price from the first trade day of the month, or the close price from the last day of the previous month?

Only reason I ask is, BKP closed on the 31 Dec 2010 at 0.014, but opened at 0.015 on the 4 Jan 2011.

All the online broker quotes started off at 0.015 (taking the open, not close of previous day), an increase of 0% for the day - even though the stock had actually increased 7.14% since previous close.

Apologies if this has been brought up in previous competitions.

The entry price is the closing price on the last trading day of the previous month. Looks like I made an error when I entered BKP's entry price. This error has now been corrected.

All good. Was more curious than anything.

Thanks Joe.

Heavens to Betsy! Ring the siren! Ring the siren! I'm in front!!!

Actually, BOD's having a great month without news. If they mange to announce commercialisation of their surgical patch techniques sometime, anytime, then they'll really rocket ... and January 2011 has been a great month all round for biotechs ...

In the absence of the siren, might have to settle for a screenshot, make it my new desktop background, & bathe in the glory while it lasts. :cool:

Hey Joe

I note that my choice of CPA is showing in the January Competition as having a starting price of $0.84. Checking on Incredible Charts, the closing price for 31 December 2010 was actually $0.83.

regards

Hi Joe,

according to our data.

You are correct. My apologies! The leaderboard wasn't updated correctly on the last day of the month it would seem. Unfortunately the screenshot cannot be altered at this stage but let the record show that DGR finished the January 2011 competition at $0.18, a gain of $0.03 (20%) during January which would have put you in 7th place and shifted everyone below you down one place. :)
