New York City, New York (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Following the success of the August Stock Challenge, StockViews will be running a second monthly competition in October. As with the August Challenge, contestants will compete for a cash prize of $250.
Scott French won last month’s contest, delivering outperformance of over 25% against the S&P500. While the competition was closely matched for the first few weeks, French pulled far into the lead in the final days of August. He remains the top-ranked investor on the StockViews site, outperforming 95% of professional Wall Street Analysts in 2013, according to StockViews’ data.
The rapid growth of StockViews is providing more investors a platform to measure their stock picking abilities and, for the best of them, to challenge Wall Street analysis. Following its expansion the site is now measuring, in real-time, the trades of over 1,200 Members and Wall Street analysts.
Brian Godoy, Head of Marketing for StockViews, said: “We continue our search for America’s top investors. We firmly believe there are a huge number of talented investors outside of Wall Street that are currently being ignored by the mainstream and our platform can give them a credible voice”.
The competition is currently open for contestants to sign up, although performance will only be measured from October 1. In order to qualify, contestants must provide three stock recommendations (Buy, Sell or Hold), together with a short investment thesis for each recommendation. The full rules can be found at StockViews.com. Performance for the month will be displayed in real-time on the StockViews leaderboard to ensure 100% transparency throughout the competition.
