I am very happy to announce that there will be one MAJOR difference this year on the stock picker challenge! Simon and I have been in discussion and Online Share Trading will be sponsoring prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places on the challenge this year. There will be a total of R5,000 on prizes which will be in the form of pens, 1st place will receive a Montblanc, 2nd and 3rd will also get pens but of incrementally less value. We hope this adds excitement to the challenge and hope every contestant best of luck for the year ahead!

nice 1. Since you are going to have regular traffic through your site of investers with cash why not approach Subaru and see if they will sponser a Forester for 1st place... or am I getting ahead of myself?

Howzit Werner the prizes are great but how do you stop people from submitting more than 1 entry?

Shaun, thats an issue with the current system, but you will notice there is a comment at the top, each contestant will have to email their contact details and telephone number to us, if this is not sent, they will not qualify for the prize, so we will notice on this who is submitting double entries. If we find that out, they will be disqualified immediately.

shorting is unfortunately not allowed this year, it creates too much of an admin hassle as the system is only designed for long shares only ranking. sorry, maybe next time if we plan it, or we can create some other challenge a bit later.

I see a lot of the people are choosing shares that will run in the first half of the year...they forget what will happen in the second half :)
