Contest Finalist Nancy B. Can She Stay #1?

Nancy Beaumont
Nancy Beaumont

Nancy Beaumont already has some firsts in the Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge. She was our first weekly winner--and that qualified her for the finals. And she's currently in first place as the contest enters its last day. Nancy is a Director of Counseling at Touro University in Vallejo, California. Her strategy was "to buy small stocks." We'll see how that plays out by the end of trading today.

FYI--to become a weekly winner, Nancy had a portfolio value of $1,645,296.56 or a weekly gain of 64.5%. She's now one of twenty people competing for the $1,000,000 prize. (Weekly winners were chosen by biggest percentage gain for one week's trading.)
