    Seriously just want to thank you for everything you're doing here. This probably takes a crap ton of effort to do and you still do it every single day to build a community. Thank you.

    Most people in the negatives for their monthly picks today as companies declined from their peaks at the open.

    Thank man. But seriously, the amount of work this takes is probably absurd, and if I'm not mistaken you run the discord server too, which is even more work. You rock man.

    hah! well this was honestly one of the main reasons i had to find a way to get these contests more automated because it was starting to get a little crazy overwhelming for me :p

    really am very thankful i came across @Three Eyes's post about the forms idea over on our 2019 changes thread the other week. it's taken some of that load off of my shoulders :cool:

    Yeah I agree and have said it many times, really appreciate of what Cy does for these contests. I am very happy that we seem to find a new way to decrease his workload and sometimes he doesn’t have to worry about coming to this forum before 9:30 am to put on the spreadsheet :D

    Interesting to see how after almost 1 week only 1 person is in the positives and only by shorting. Shows how bad this month is so far.

    This month could see a wicked rally.
    MNK is sinking me, just following the 10 ma down.

    you know that this is a bad month when the only reason I'm the sole person in the positives is because I shorted a company I had shares in at the start of the week.

    Again shows how bad things are when I'm the only person in the green this month by shorting a company I owned at the start of the month.

    Or holiday stocks (my FDX and AMZN picks, which I think I made last May :eek:). At this point, @Steven_Burt , I am hoping to beat you to the bottom. It would be an honor to out-do you in making the worst picks! ;)
