2015 Beyond Portfolio Challange quote:

Welcome to the 2015 Portfolio Challenge!

Every year we have had a stocks contest... however the number of stocks has always been limited and usually a single stock can burn somebody. We often we limit the market in which to invest as well, which detracts from the selection of stocks you can pick. This year however, we are opening the flood gates!

Basic Contest Structure

-You will be given $100,000 CAD in Beyond Dollars to invest evenly across 10 stocks.

-10,000 CAD per stock, and USD stocks will converted based on the exchange rate on XE.com on the start day, and converted back to CAD on the end date. During the contest, your portfolio will show CAD and USD balances separately.

-You cannot sell your stock prior to the end of the contest, and dividends will not be accounted for. The contest is based on the principal price amount only.

-You can choose any stock you like with three exceptions:

A) The stock must work with Google spreadsheets.
For the last contest last it was too much work to keep updating the tickers which were not functioning. If it does not function with Google spreadsheets, I will send you a PM.

B) You cannot have the same 10 stocks as someone else, 9 however is acceptable. If there is a duplication, the person who posted first will be allowed to retain, the second poster will have to change at least one selection.

C) It must be on a Canadian or US exchange

Please list the exchange and stock ticker neatly in your replies. The official start date will be based on the end of day price on May 15th, 2015

D) Clarification made on page 2 regarding how many repeat stocks you can purchase:

Originally posted by Sugarphreak
if somebody decides to pick just 4 stocks (which is the minimum if they pick a 3 stocks 3 times, plus one) it won't will let them run away with a single lucky win.




This contest will conclude at end of day on May 13th, 2016

The contest winner will be offered a goofy prize of some kind, suggestions for the prize are welcome.

Good Luck!

i think you used up all of your golden horseshoes... having a single stock come out of no where and double in the last month isnt going to do the same thing when its only 1/10th of your portfolio

Go for it... however first make sure they work with google speadsheets, if they do, post the working ticker and exchange

Did you see the mousepad Flipstah got for winning the last time? No amount of money can equal the bragging rights of that, haha

Sugarphreak, can we pick less than 10? Say 5? Otherwise I might just pick each stock twice.

Edit: Can we short?

Edit 2: How are you treating dividends?

These are a few example formulas of stocks on different exchanges:

=GOOGLEFINANCE("BMO.TO","PRICE")
=GOOGLEFINANCE("NASDAQ:AAPL","PRICE")

So for peoples list, the easiest thing for me is use these formats:

BMO.TO
NASDAQ:AAPL

You can check to see if it works easily using google docs btw

Edit 2: How are you treating dividends?



-I will allow you guys to pick the same stock twice or even three times if you really want. No more than that though.

-No shorting

-As per the OP, dividends will not be considered. The contest focuses on the principal amount only.

Based on my investing success, I don't think an extra month of data is going to help me out in any way. Plus, I'll probably forget to enter and then be annoyed for the rest of the year.

I will edit my original post with the correct format and verify that they work with your spreadsheet before the deadline.

I know I'm not running this, but I think if it's ten stocks, its' ten unique stocks without the ability to pick fewer, or pick the same one multiple times. Makes it harder to ride one or two lucky picks to victory.

Although, since I was 27th place out of 28 entries last time, maybe I'm just bitter.

You are such a petty loser.

But I changed it.

Why do we need a month to pick? Technically, I can change mine so many times.

Last contest there were a lot of people who wanted to join but didn't see the thread in time.

A month will give people enough heads up and time to get their picks sorted

So I ordered the most disgusting tasting 12" sub, and at the end, said "Actually, I changed my mind. I'm going to head to the Subway down the road. They serve the breakfast sandwich all day long. Tell your boss, he can have this sandwich. Thanks anyways".
