I have sorted this out for you two. Thanks for the heads-up.

Note that I'll be on vacation with spotty internet access for the next couple of months, so if anything needs doing with the contest it might be best to pm me and then I can deal with it when I get back.

Thanks, Spudd! :thumbsup:

WE may have swapped spots Keith, but we're still a long way from the top/bottom either way! :P

Spudd,
Hopefully you are still enjoying your vacation, and it is not in someplace like Florida! I believe the closing price on Sept 5th was $3.03, which you should be able to verify when you get back.

Have fun.

Dave

And the final results for the year.... drum roll please...

FinancialDave is the winner with his Vile Bio Hedgefund, which held a single long stock and doubled in value.

LadyGeek is #2 with also a single stock, but on the short side, up 80%.

Congrats to the winners! :beer:
