    Stockaholics Q1 2017 Quarterly Stock Picking Contest
    (Read this first post for the Q1 2017 Quarterly Stock Picking Contest.)

    Congrats to T.B.A. the Q4 2016 Contest Winner!

    *Link to the Q4 2016 Stock Picking Contest Thread*

    On to the next! The Q1 2017 Quarterly Stock Picking Contest starts at the opening bell on Tuesday, January 3rd, 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 (either of them). For example, if someone picks AAPL - Long, you can only pick AAPL - Short as long as it is not taken yet. 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 Tuesday, January 3rd. 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.
    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.

    You can close out one or both of your picks at anytime by posting the fact you want to close it on the thread. If you state that you want to close a position during regular trading hours (before the closing bell), you will get that day's closing price. If you decide to close a position after the trading day is finished (after the closing bell), you will get the next day's opening price. PLEASE POST YOUR OWN CLOSING/OPENING PRICES!

    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 Tuesday, January 3rd!

    GLTA.
