Shi Nisman is one of the twenty finalists in our Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge (by the way, his first name rhymes with shy). But Shi is not "shy" about the contest--he's in 7th place today as we head into the last hours of trading for the contest. He wants to win the $1,000,000 prize--but has some work to do.
His strategy for the contest was to pick volatile stocks with expected low correlation to the rest of the contest participants. Shi works for an investment firm and grew up in Israel and San Antonio, Texas. He is currently living in Manhattan. Shi ended the regular contest with a portfolio value of $4,756,585.03--making him eligible to become a finalist.
