When: Starting Today, Thursday, April 25, 2019
Where: CNBC's "Power Lunch"
Today, Thursday, April 25th, CNBC's "Power Lunch" (M-F 2PM – 3PM) commences the 2019 CNBC Stock Draft, as ten teams launch into a battle to the bottom line for the ultimate title of "Stock Draft Champion." The stakes are higher than ever with a fully stacked lineup, featuring: The Beardstown Ladies; Chef Bobby Flay; Skinnygirl Cocktails Founder, Bethenny Frankel; Former NFL Player for the Patriots, Two-Time Super Bowl Champion, Jarvis Green; Professional Poker Player, Maria Ho; Former NFL Kicker for the Jets and Chiefs and the 2018 Stock Draft champion, Nick Lowery; O'Shares Investments Chairman and the 2017 Stock Draft champion, Kevin O'Leary; Mentalist Oz Pearlman; Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Seymour Asset Management, Tim Seymour; and MLB Pitcher for the New York Mets, Noah Syndergaard.
Will Nick the Kick land between the goalposts again, or will Mr. Wonderful bite his way back to the top? Can Bobby Flay cook up a win, or will the chips fall for Maria Ho? Does Bethenny have the skinny on the best picks, or is the magic in Oz's ability to defy expectations?
In this fierce financial fight, each team is allotted three investments from a pre-determined list of 60 stocks and commodities, spanning everything from tech heavyweights to bitcoin, and even some of the most beaten down names in the market. CNBC will then track the performance of each team's three investments until the Friday before the NFL Super Bowl (January 31, 2020) when the team with the best average appreciation will take all. Which team will come out on top?
Viewers now have a chance to get in on the action, too: Those at home can pick who they think will be in first place one month in (with closing prices on Tuesday, May 28th) for the chance to win a special trip for two to CNBC World HQ.
