Here's our Fast Money Final Trade. Our gang gives you tomorrow's best trades, right now!
CNBC announced today that Mary Sue Williams of St. Clairsville, Ohio is the winner of the CNBC Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge. Williams, 41, is a waitress at an Italian restaurant and says she and her husband Mark had never invested in a stock or bond in their lives before the contest. They have two daughters, aged 19 and 13.
Hey there folks. Here's more on weekly winner #6 James Kraber. It's a beakdown of his contest strategy--with some numbers and stocks to go with it. James gained 53.85% since the close on Friday, April 6th where he had a portfolio value of $795,393.08 and ended the week after Monday's close with a portfolio value of $1,223,675.94.
Folks--here's a sector breakdown from our crack analystical team on what's happening with the stocks you contestants are buying. And there's been a "sea change" for sure. The analyses run through 3/28, found that over 50% of the leaders' trades occurred in retail and technology. But the current analysis--run from 3/29 - 4/10, shows that the contest leaders are now much more diversified with the top group only comprising 8.07%.
Okay, here's a look at the stocks making the most waves from last Thursday to Monday's close. There are the usual suspects in the most actives and most widely held. But new names are showing up in the best and worst performing. Earnings boosted one stock, WDFC and helped put James Kraber into second place on the leaderboard, as we mentioned in our first post today.
Good morning. We're back on track after Friday's market holiday. Parker Robinson maintains the top spot in the leaderboard for the 2nd day running, James Kraber takes over 2nd on WD-40 (WDFC) up 15.52% Monday, and Deborah Taft, still all in cash, falls to 4th place.
Here's a look at where celeb Judy Gold stands in Trading with the Stars--as chronicled by the crew on "Morning Call," the show she's playing for. She's in 6th place, but DYING to move up a spot or two. Willie Garson still leads the pack after what can only be described as a "tremendous" move up the ranks. (see Timothy Sykes' blog post today).
Here's our update on "Trading With The Stars." Willie proves himself as not another flash in the pan, and maintains the #1 spot two day's in a row. (and just like Willie--almost- Johnny Bench holds onto 7th place!) Interesting note: all of our celeb portfolios are above the $1 million benchmark. Congrats to all for that!!
Wow--a big move and an exciting day for the celebrities in "Trading With The Stars." In a big upset--really big--actor Willie Garson propels himself from last place to take the top spot on a HUGE gain with his trade on Robbins & Myers. All our celebs showed gains in their portfolio except for Ernie Hudson who lost out on AgioDynamics which he held a day too long, erasing his earlier gains and dropping him into last place..
