One investment. Namely, Vanguard's Total Stock Market Index (VTSMX) fund and letting it ride for the contest .
I was away, and had that thought when I saw the contest.

The lazy index not for me (too risky for me ), just a "contestant" in honor of nunnun from the previous contest.

Whoever is participating with id Commuter - quick suggestion - not a good idea to hold MINT for this contest ... cash balance is paying 3%, MINT is essentially fixed income/cash alternative at 2.8%. You're better off just keeping it as cash. If you're simply replicating your real life portfolio, then I can understand the MINT position.

Somehow I was able to join this time but I'm just messing around with this one. I just wanted to view the players. I expect this game to have many of the same problems as the other ones.

So, you just couldn't resist peeking at the other players then. That's a start .

I'm surprised nobody has commented on the picks I posted on 5/10 in this thread.

Since I posted, MELI's stock price has gone from 557.94 to 595.73...

up nearly 7% in 5 days (earnings report was a few weeks ago).

And NTES is up 5.5% since 5/10...

both very volatile but nice sugar high when they go up.

With more diverse indexes, I'm ahead of the lazy total market index in the ranking .

I stopped playing last week, as I thought it went inactive as the only real competition quit after getting blown up on his volatility trade?

Isn't this a two year contest? Quitting after a month?
