Contest Finals: Tang Tops List!

Good morning all. We have some info for you. The first Million Dollar Finals leader is Donald Tang who gained $73K on Mindray Medical. He's closely followed by Serge Amelyan with the same Mindray Medical trade. However, Serge used his remaining cash to buy 2 shares of CMGI at $2.44, which fell -2.46% Tuesday-- resulting in the $0.12 difference between him and Donald, and costing him the tie for first.

Here are some trends of interest: 5 out of 20 went all-in on SINA Corp, selling out at a loss of $15,500 (1.5%) while 4 of 20 bought Jack in the Box betting on solid earnings when they report Wednesday.

Here's the leaderboard and stock action of each finalist:
