[b]As of the close of Trading 6/22/2018[/b] I threw in the S&P 500 as a benchmark as someone suggested... Zilla is still KILLING IT! Some jockeying for position within the Top 10, but the players in the Top 10 remain unchanged from the last update! [img]https://i.imgur.com/dTpf7qA.png...

re: Has anyone used Prosper.com to lend money? - Moots
I played around with Lending Club for a couple of years (same concept)... Not impressed at all with the performance and no longer actively contributing. Probably earned under 2% overall and had I not sold some notes on the secondary market (Folio), I'd probably been in the RED! :banghead:...
