We have a winner! The ABL 2021 Stock Picking Contest has finished, and DaMaaster aka Moneymaaster aka Jordan Maas cruised to victory after a dominating first half start. We had a couple of acquisitions and conversions during the year, but I’m pretty sure I calculated everything right, and I’m almost pretty sure the world will keep spinning even if I got something a little wrong.
Let’s see how everyone did:
Many thanks to Odysseus for setting up the tracking spreadsheet and providing an entry that did worse than my own. For the curious, I\’m planning on holding on to my Carnival shares to see if this COVID thing works itself out one of these days.
Congratulations to Jordan for figuring out that forest products is where the action is.
And of course thanks to everyone who played.
Will there be a 2022 contest? That all depends on you. I’ll go ahead and make my entry below – if you’re interested, see the rules below and please provide a single stock you own in the comments. I have a feeling 2022 may be a wild one for investors, and I’m sure whatever I mock most is going to once again have the best return.
2021 was a great year for my family and me, but it was a woefully unproductive year for blogging. I’ll try to change that this year, but no promises!
A very Happy New Year to everyone.
