There’s only 21 days left. Where’s your squawk box portfolio challenge portfolio at? I managed to lose a little ground over the last few days. I screwed up actually. I’m fairly heavily invested into Google. I bought in at about $404 and ignored the desire to sell when it hit nearly $425 last week. Well, chalk it up for a lesson learned. GOOG is now down below $394 and doesn’t appear to be going back up anytime soon. There goes about $30,000 in portfolio value.
On a brighter note, I’ve managed to keep my portfolio above the 1 million mark almost the entire time. It’s currently sitting at 1,013,378.00. Not great, but good enough to be in the top 40% of the contest. My feeling on that is that there were a few people who lost big right away and abandoned their portfolio and that there are a few who signed up and never bought anything so they sit at 1 million still. At this point, the leader of the game is well over 2 million and I’ve given up hope of winning the Mazerati, but I’m gonna stick with it and see if I can’t keep growing the portfolio a little. Maybe I’ll buy more Google.
