    Pixel, I have you down for PPY with an entry price of $0.033. Is this not correct?

    This has now been corrected.

    That is correct, Joe. Thanks.
    My comment referred to THD, which is not my pick, but happens to be on my watch list. That's why I noticed the unlikely price quote - merely by coincidence. :)

    Hi Joe,

    Similar issues to the above.

    Stock not updated from last month, but price updated correctly.
    THD was my pick last month (currently 0.014)
    GPP is this month's pick (currently at 0.019)

    Cheers

    I just noticed, if you look at the leaderboard and click on the ticker the link takes you to the Yahoo stock quote page. This is good except that it takes you to NYSE stocks with that ticker code not ASX. :)

    This has now been modified so the links lead to the correct ASX Yahoo stock quote page.

    This appears to be a temporary issue with the Yahoo data. I'll try running the update script again in the morning and hopefully it'll be working again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    It appears that Yahoo has discontinued its free delayed data service. We have been using this data for the ASF stock tipping competition since its inception in 2004. This is a very disappointing development. I will now have to investigate other data sources so the stock tipping competition can continue. Unfortunately the competition leaderboard will probably not be updated until this issue is resolved. My apologies for the inconvenience.

    Yahoo changes its thing every so often to prevent scraping.

    Googlefinance EOD would do the job.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm currently investing possible solutions and will hopefully have the competition back up and running early next week.
