    Default 2019 NZ Stock Picking Contest

    Hi all...well, its that time :-)
    Would love to get a big crowd for this coming years competition...I am proposing the same rules as 2018's comp.

    1) Pick FIVE different NZX-listed equity instruments (incl. Smartshares and foreign companies listed in NZ). Companies/Funds with a market cap of less than $10m may not be selected.
    2) Each pick has an equal weighting.
    3) Picks in by 7pm January 2nd 2019 (New Zealand time); ie, prior to trading opening.
    4) You may not use the alias that belongs to someone else on sharetrader.co.nz, or misrepresent another person.

    Returns calculations
    1) Each will start with a notional portfolio of $10,000
    2) Returns will be calculate from the last closing price of 2017 (which i think is Dec 31st 2018) to the last closing price of 2019.
    3) Its a 'total return' comp, so Dividends will be included - but NOT benefits from imputation credits or other tax-specific benefits.
    4) Rights issues are included according to the 'Snoopy Formula'. This does not increase capital, but recognises a capital gain/loss on the rights for the year.
    5) If a selection delists or otherwise somehow dissolves; it will be kept but manually adjusted in your selections to reflect the realised situation resulting from the event causing this.
    6) Winner is the person who has the largest %age increase.

    There are THREE ways to enter:
    1) via this survey form:
    https://1drv.ms/xs/s!AuUMI8ycnlsfhf0...A1E8E32CC4F%7D
    2) email to sylvestercat2018@gmail.com
    3) private message to me on sharetrader

    I won't publish what people are picking before Dec 31st.

    Happy Christmas / New Year everyone...and happy picking.

    Your faithful puddytat,
    Sylvester

    I should say - please don't select TGH! I know its been delisted, it somehow crept onto the list.
    And if there are any other shares not listed in the sheet, please let me know via this forum.

    Okay, so it seems I have mnissed off the veritable "Colonial Motor" (Ticker CMO).
    Have now added this into the picklist - if this causes anyone to re-think their picks, please get back to me!!

    Entries so far at 116 (incl. broker picks). Some interesting stats / questions to ponder coming out of the 2018 comp, so might be some good thinking to do...

    If you've entered - please check that your 'alias' is here: https://sites.google.com/view/sharet...019-entry-list
    If its not, get in touch with your friendly puss and we will sort it :-)!

    Thank you SC

    Bad omen for NZX tomorrow ..unless US markets have a good night

    Problem when we close for 2 days while world still carries on.
