B1G Stock Market Game Week 7

New, 34 comments

Many have thrown away good money on Rutger

NCAA Football: Big Ten Media Days Jim Young-USA TODAY Sports

What an exciting weekend in college football, yeah? We all know the deal by now, I think. Some teams went up, others went down. This was Northwestern's and Purdue's week to go way up. I asked you last week if either team had hit their bottom and were on the way up, some of you apparently thought so. I also recall advising against Rutger, but nobody ever reads these.

Dividends were distributed to your liquid assets, enjoy.

The Rules

  1. Start with an initial investment equal to the average of all current investors. This week, that’s 573 Delaney Dollars ($573DD).
  2. Select team stocks to buy.
  3. After the week’s games, sell, hold, and/or buy for the next week.
  4. Max number of any one team’s shares that you can own is 50.
  5. The game pays a 10% dividend of current prices in weeks 4, 7, 10, and 13 for all shares you’ve held for three consecutive weeks.

Team stock value comes from Teamrankings.com. The value of each team is the inverse of their current rating (out of 130 FBS teams), so team #2 costs $129, #6 costs $125, #129 costs $2.

What Teams Should I Invest In?

Buy low, sell high. Or vice versa. Buy shares of your own team, or feel all greasy by buying shares of your rival. While nobody can perfectly predict The Formula, team ratings are pretty much based on their game results, their opponents, and their opponents’ opponents.

Some players diversify, and others go heavy on one stock. You’ll find your niche. If you don’t like the dartboard method, you may want to check out Dead Read’s B1G Stock Report.

This Week

Next dividend payout is Week 10, you’ll have to purchase stocks this go around and hold until then to be eligible.

Hmmm, Rutger is looking kinda enticing, no?

The opening bell has rung, here are this week’s stock prices:

Illinois 47; Indiana 84; Iowa 121; Maryland 66; Michigan 126; Michigan State 112; Minnesota 92; Nebraska 113; Northwestern 45; Ohio State 128; Penn State 123; Purdue 100; Rutger 64; Wisconsin 105
