  • Celeb Hudson "Rolls On" Up to 2nd Place Tuesday, 1 May 2007 | 11:49 AM ET
    Ernie Hudson

    Wow--actor Ernie Hudson pulled out all the stops (thus his picture gets listed) and jumped from 4th into 2nd place in Trading With The Stars. This continues his momentous climb as he had previously moved from 8th to 4th. So Ernie is definitely on a roll or donut -or just plain getting some great advice. Ernie knocks fellow actor Stephen Collins into 4th place behind James Cromwell, while Jonathan Tucker keeps a hold on 1st place. And Johnny Bench might take a few lessons from Ernie. The Hall of Fame catcher keeps 10th place very warm!

  • Contest Stocks: New Names Make Most Active List Tuesday, 1 May 2007 | 10:20 AM ET

Speaking of the most active, three names make an appearance for the first time--Qwest, Nam Tia Electronics and Vishay Intertechnology. But FMT and BQI are knocked out of the most active.

    Hey folks. Guest blogger Timothy Sykes is back with his contest picks for the early week. Here he goes. Great Monday afternoon to everyone! Just got back from Orlando and I’m happy to see the markets moving steadily higher.

  • Contest Stocks: Earnings And More Earnings Monday, 30 Apr 2007 | 9:30 AM ET

    It's official--we are a broken record--as we talk once again about earnings when it comes to  contest stocks. Earnings affected the best performers as well as the worst, showing how dominate those numbers can be when it comes to stock performance. And the hope of good earnings today put a new name on the most active list. (see below). Here ya go:

  • Re-Cap: Leaderboard(s), Stocks And Trivia Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 2:08 PM ET

  • Sykes: Why I'm "En Fuego" (On Fire) With Picks Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 12:31 PM ET

    Hey folks, we have guest blogger Timothy Sykes back today. And somewhat like Jeff Mishlove, Timothy points out some of his successes from the past week. (Timothy does make a nice point below about information from the experts.) Here he is:

  • Celebs "Trading"--But Not Top Places Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 11:53 AM ET
    James Tucker

    It's the "usual suspects" holding down the top three spots on Trading With The Stars. Jonathan Tucker and a very active Stephen Collins maintain a status quo by holding the first two positions. Jonathan has not made any transactions except for bonus bucks since 4/23, and Stephen had been active buying and selling and getting big gains on Advanced Energy--balanced by losses in C-Cor. James Cromwell continues to hold 3rd place.

  • Mishlove: How My Portfolio Grew So Much Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 10:26 AM ET

    Hey folks, guest blogger Jeff Mishlove is back. Sorry to say, we're going to lose Jeff for awhile, as he does have his own business interests to take care of (all guest bloggers receive NO compensation from us). We certainly hope to hear from Jeff in the future, as he's always welcome to post here. Jeff's done pretty well this week--and as he says--you might have as well. Here's his post:

  • Contest Stocks See More Earnings Fallout Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 10:05 AM ET

    At the risk of repeating myself, which I am, it's earnings once again that's dominating the results of the contest stocks. It certainly makes sense, seeing as this is earnings season. And those playing the "earnings game" are seeing the benefits, (current contest leader Greyson Masters) if they picked right (VDSI). Of course, earnings can be a "downer" as owners of SMMX and ISLN found out. Here ya go.

  • Earnings "Finance" New Leader Of The Pack Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 9:06 AM ET

    Good morning all. Another new name tops the leaderboard. Greyson Masters takes the top spot with his million dollar trade on Vasco Data (we said yesterday, this might happen), Shi Nisman falls to 3rd on a bad earnings play with Old Dominion, which fell 6.02% Thursday, and cost him almost $250K. Serge Amelyan moves back up the list into 2nd on F5 Networks' strong earnings.

  • Infineon Profit Disappoints Analysts Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | 6:36 AM ET

    German chipmaker Infineon missed expectations with a wider second-quarter operating loss for its core, non-memory units mainly due to charges relating to the insolvency of a major client.

  • Microsoft Woes 2.0 Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 3:08 PM ET

    Wow! Talk about a busy earnings season. I haven't had much time to breathe lately, which explains the lack of blogs these past several days. The financial flurry has been non-stop and right now is the first chance I've gotten to catch that long-lost breath. And it gives me an opportunity to focus on Microsoft, which reports after the bell today.The Street is looking for 46 cents on $13.89 billion in revenue.

  • Celebs Tucker, Collins Hold Firm-Hudson Heads "South" Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 11:58 AM ET
    James Tucker

    Actors Jonathan Tucker and Stephen Collins hold onto the first two positions in Trading With The Stars. (We post Jonathan's picture--as he still leads). Stephen had gains on most of his purchases on 4/24, but lost almost 6% on Advanced Energy. Meanwhile, Ernie Hudson continues to be the most volatile moving from down 5th to 8th on losses in Advent Software and Mentor.

  • Mishlove: Contest Picks For Thursday Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 10:57 AM ET

    Hey everyone. Here's guest blogger Jeff Mishlove's contest picks for today: Now that Wednesday’s very exciting market has closed, I see that – once again – my recommendations for Tuesday purchases turned out to be quite volatile. Life Cell Corporation was up 4.99%. Anadigics was down 10.72%. American Commercial Lines was down 5.32%. Overseas Shipholding Group was up by 8.55%.

  • Contest Stocks--Earnings Once Again "Earn" Respect Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 10:38 AM ET

    Here's our latest contest stock report. Once again, earnings--good and bad--are playing apart in what's making you "money" or not. If you had Amazon, you saw the good, while owners of Travelzoo saw the bad--and ugly, from earnings. Also, there's a new name on the most active list--as a results of earnings--Sun Microsystems. Here ya go with the details:

  • Contest Leader Breaks $4 Million Mark Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 10:01 AM ET

    Good morning all. Shi Nisman holds the top spot, and becomes the first contestant to break the $4 million mark on strong Corning earnings. And Greyson Masters takes over the 2nd position, displacing Kevin Boyd, who fell to 19th on a bad gamble with Travelzoo earnings, which fell almost 24% Wednesday.
