re: Let's do a top 5 equity portfolio for 2018
To pick two stocks to fall 90% > in a calendar year is insanely impressive

It truly is. I think next year we should each have two list. A top 5 portfolio pick and a worst 5 portfolio pick and see how it plays out.

We’ll be lucky to have these guys track a 2019 portfolio. With splits/M&A, sounds like it got pretty confusing.

With that said thank you guys for keeping up with it this year. It’s been interesting.

I appreciate your words. I don't want to make it sound like it's been a horrible experience for me to keep up with everyone's picks because it hasn't.

When a company is bought or changes its stock symbol the Excel "vlookup table" I use to download all the stocks into from our game using MorningStar gets out of whack and starts giving me "#ref!" errors in some cells.

If I was more knowledgeable about how to use Excel it would probably be easy to fix but since I'm an Excel amateur it's a real thrill to make the needed changes without screwing up other parts of the spreadsheet.

All-in-all, it's been fun for me. I'll gladly volunteer to take on tracking a similar contest in 2019 if there's enough interest to have another contest next year.

I'm no Excel genius, but I'd be happy to look at it to try to solve the errors. Can you upload it to Google Drive or something and link it?

Thanks but I've fixed the problem with the latest stock that changed symbols. So there aren't any errors now that I know of.

I'll be happy to do that as soon as I take a class on how to do it.

Seriously, I have no idea what that is or how to go about doing what you suggested.

I don't even have a Google account (I refuse to let those bastards know more about me than they already do!) which I suspect I'd need for any uploading, right?

It seems so, yes. You could also try something like Dropbox. I'm not sure of any other file sharing services...

re: Let's do a top 5 equity portfolio for 2018
You're welcome.

Let's all be thinking about if we want to do this again for 2019.

Now that I've got my Excel spreadsheet set up it will be pretty simple for me to just plug in the stock picks so I'm up for doing it again.

I know this contest has made me start following some companies I'd never heard of before I saw them picked on here so it's been somewhat educational for me.

I guess if Leo, you and I are the only three posters who want to have a stock picking contest in 2019
we are all assured of finishing in the Top 3.
