Top Spot Battle Heating Up As Number 2 Closes Gap

Good morning. Deborah Taft and Chad Mazeika continue to hold the top two spots, but Chad continues to gain on Deborah. Deborah's portfolio gained $3,000 in bonus bucks to $2,582,876.30. Her strategy of all cash appears to be working, but her lead is narrowing with only about $224,000 separating her and Chad--which is down from $245,000 on Monday.

Chad Mazeika retains the #2 position with a portfolio value of $2,359,154.87 up $24,133.53 based mostly on gains from Vonage which was up 2.51% today that Chad sold out of making him almost $30K. Chad also sold out of Crystalex International at a loss of almost $9K. He is currently all-in on Elan Pharma , buying 172,578 shares at $13.67 which could make or break his place in the leaderboard.
