B1G Stock Market Game Week 10

Stock Market Game is mailing it in late

Couriers Compete For Peak Employees Ahead Of Holiday Season

Sorry for being a dirtbag, folks. Dividends paid, On Wisconsin, lol Rutger. We’ll call it extended hours, just turn in your new picks by 10am EST on Saturday.

The Rules

  1. Start with an initial investment equal to the average of all current investors. This week, that’s 585 Delaney Dollars ($585DD). It’s too late to buy in.
  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 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.
