For this year's Fast Money Madness Challenge, 16 technology companies square off. Eight of the leading stocks in the S&P Information Technology Index will go up against eight of the laggards.
The companies were divided into four "regions" – Big Tech, Internet, Chips, and Payments. The teams and match-ups were selected based on year-to-date performance, analyst ratings and investor sentiment.
For the next three weeks on "Fast Money"(5 p.m. ET), the four panelists will vigorously debate the stock match-ups in our bracket. CNBC Pro subscribers will get exclusive access to previews of each match-up before the show. There will never be any ties because the viewers' Twitter vote counts as the fifth trader. The winner of each match-up will move on to the next round.
Before each game to be played that night, just tweet your ticker picks to @cnbcfastmoney using the hashtag #fastmoneymadness.
Then watch "Fast Money" each night to see your how your pick does in the game.
And check back here on CNBC Pro for the bracket and in-depth pre-game and post-game analysis.
