Investment Strategy For This Contest
I don’t know if what I did even qualifies as strategy. I purchased about 20 or stocks that were familiar and then I closed my eyes and crossed my fingers. The end result was losses across the board that ranged from minor to utterly devastating. The only place I didn’t lose money was with [hq]AAPL[/hq], and even that was simply breaking even. Apple happens to be a Blue Chip stock, which I suppose is appropriate for this contest.
I think the lesson here is nobody should ever trust me to invest their money. Also don’t invest in something just because you use it or it’s popular.
