Taft Holds Tight--Old Number 2 Is New Again

Good morning. Deborah Taft continues "sittting pretty" in first place, racking up her bonus bucks, but remaining all in cash. The drama has all been about the second spot--which Chad Mazeika reclaims today--displacing Parker Robinson.
Deborah's portfolio has gained $3,000 in bonus bucks to $2,579,876.30. Her strategy of all cash appears to be working with about $245,000 separating her from Chad in the # 2 spot.

Chad Mazeika regains the #2 position from #4 with a portfolio value of $2,335,021.34 up $58,571.32 from $2,276,450.02 on Friday--based mostly on gains from U.S. Bioenergy Corp. which was up 2.44% today. U.S. Bionenergy reported strong earnings with gains in its ethanol business.

Parker Robinson, who held the #2 spot on Friday, fell to 5th place losing $90K in value from Friday to end Monday at $2,198,007.75 with a bad gamble on XM Satellite which he continued to hold, and fell over 4% today.
