    Stockaholics December 2017 Stock Picking Contest
    (Read this first post for the December 2017 Stock Picking Contest.)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @anotherdevilsadvocate the November 2017 Contest Winner!

    *Link to the November 2017 Stock Picking Contest Thread*

    On to the next! The December 2017 Stock Picking Contest starts at the opening bell on Friday, December 1st, 2017.

    Important - Please read carefully: IF ONE OR MORE OF YOUR PICKS ARE OUT OF COMPLIANCE AFTER THE START OF THE CONTEST, YOUR POSITION WILL BE FORFEITED.

    *When you make your picks, please make sure there are empty spaces around them, so they come up in the thread search.

    Correct: AAPL - Long (Blank space after AAPL)
    Incorrect: AAPL- Long (No space after AAPL)
    • Pick TWO stocks, either long, short, that trade on the U.S. Stock Exchange.
    • You cannot duplicate someone's exact play! For example- If someone picks AAPL - Long and BAC - Long first then you can only pick AAPL - Short and BAC - Long or AAPL - Long and BAC - Short <-- you may only duplicate 1 pick but not BOTH! Use the "Search This Thread" link as it only takes a few seconds to see if the ticker has been mentioned.
    • Get your picks in BEFORE the opening bell on Friday, December 1st. I will provide all the opening prices as I have the spreadsheet set to auto look up the opens.
    • The stock/ETF must close at $2 minimum the day before the contest. No Indexes or pinks/OTCBB.
    • You are only allowed 1 leveraged ETF. If you choose two, the second of the two does not count and is still up for grabs. If incorrect picks go un-noticed, you risk your position being forfeited. (These are the 2x/3x ETF's)
    • Once you pick something, that is it, it is yours unless it is not a valid pick. This way someone doesn't pick a stock that others want, then at the last second change it. Please do not edit your posts with your picks. If you pick one at a time, just use two separate posts instead of editing your first.
    • Optional - You may post a rationale (either technical or fundamental) for your picks, but it is not required.
    • You may choose to close out your pick at any time during the trading day. Please post your own closing price(s). We will be using the closing price of the 1 minute intraday chart with the time stamp of your post here on Stockaholics to get your official intraday closing prices!
    If you choose to close out one or both of your picks after the trading day is finished (after the closing bell), you will get the next day's opening price. PLEASE POST YOUR OWN OPENING PRICES!

    Once again, it is your responsibility to check that your pick is not a duplicate. The "Search This Thread" link I mentioned makes this as simple as it can be. If you choose to not check and should you duplicate someone's pick, it will not count.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and if anyone sees someone else messing up, please correct them. Also, please look at your positions after I post the spreadsheets. I try to catch mistakes, in and out of my control, but need your help in making sure the information is accurate.

    Remember...the contest starts at the opening bell on Friday, December 1st!

    GLTA.

    Stockaholics wins the monthly poll tally for November! Credit goes to the UP votes! :cool:


    Post your Vote!
    [​IMG]


    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-1.00% or less. Of course, everyone can define flat any way they choose.
    2) Up, Flat, or Down must be clearly specified in a post in order to be listed in the spreadsheet, otherwise it'll be assumed that post was not intended to be a part of the official record.
    3) It's OK to post your vote if you missed the deadline after the poll has expired and if the market has not really moved that much or especially if your late vote is opposite or flat of the S&P futures ATM. It will be up to my discretion and obviously, the more active voters will be given more leeway.
    4) Starting and ending points based on official month ending close of the market.
    5) The primary goal of this game is to track our performance. You can consider it a contest or as a personal critiquing tool to better ones performance

    IMMU - long
    GALT - short

    Going to try biopharmcatalyst.com for the monthly competition. There's 4 that sorta stand out to me...a lot of stuff in the catalyst calendar is "just" poster presentations at cancer conferences, and that kind of stuff is only partial data usually.

    IMMU
    SACTUZUMAB GOVITECAN (IMMU-132)
    Cancer - metastatic triple-negative breast cancer
    Phase 3 December 5-9, 201712/05/2017
    Phase 3 enrollment commenced October 2017. BLA filing due between December 2017 and March 2018. Phase 2 data to be used for accelerated approval. Phase 2 updated data due at San Antonio Breast Cancer symposium (SABCS) December 5-9, 2017.
    <this is only a data update, but I'll take a chance. This drug's already got a name!>

    GALT
    GR-MD-02
    Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) with cirrhosis
    Phase 2b Early December 201712/15/2017
    Phase 2b top-line data due early December 2017.
    <Phase 2b is a tough one, I'll take a chance that this one will fail. No name for this drug>

    ATNM
    Actimab-A
    Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
    Phase 2 12/10/2017
    Phase 2 to initiated September 2016. Poster at ASH December 10, 2017 with top-line data due 1H 2018.
    <Just a poster presentation, so this usually doesn't cause that much excitement like official results that are due 1H18>

    FBIO
    CAEL‐101
    AL amyloidosis
    Phase 1/2 12/10/2017
    Phase 1/2 data due at ASH December 10, 2017.

    Here is this month's contest spreadsheet in case I'm unable to get around to it later tomorrow-
    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    NOTE: *Ignore the current "opening prices" as those will automatically correct to tomorrow's opening prices after 9:30am eastern time.*

    Good luck to all of our participants in here for this month! :cool:

    @anotherdevilsadvocate
    @bigbear0083

    NOTE: I am just posting up this month's spreadsheet a little earlier than usual in here as I have a pretty busy day ahead of me for tomorrow. I will continue adding members picks up until the 9:30am eastern time opening bell tomorrow morning so don't think you are excluded from this week's contest if I haven't listed your name up right now. I just wanted to get this spreadsheet posted in here and out of the way so I don't have to worry about getting it up at a later time tomorrow. ;)
