    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Friday (2/2)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)

    Congrats to @emmett kelly the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (2/1)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (2/1)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (2/2) starts at the opening bell on Friday, February 2nd, 2018.

    If you want to be eligible to participate in the daily challenge here is what you need to do (REQUIRED!):
    • 1.) Post 1 ticker (ex. AAPL = Apple)
    • 2.) Choose either Long or Short (Obviously LONG = if you think it will go up ... or SHORT = if you think it will go down)
    • 3.) Your pick MUST be at least $2 at the bare minimum! If you pick something that is under $2 then your pick will not count, and you will not be entered into the daily stock picking challenge!
    Challenge Rules (PLEASE READ THESE AND FOLLOW THEM!):
    • 1.) No OTC or IPOs.
    • 2.) No Futures, Forex, Indexes stuff like that... Equities ONLY that trade on the U.S. Stock Exchange!
    • 3.) If you don't post both the ticker AND the direction (LONG/SHORT) you won't be added to the list of contestants for the daily stock picking challenge!
    • 4.) You cannot duplicate someone's exact pick!
    • 5.) Picks absolutely MUST be posted in here before the 9:30AM eastern time cash market open!
    • 6.) You are NOT allowed to pick any leveraged ETFs (2x/3x). If you choose one, it will not count. If incorrect picks go un-noticed, you risk your position being forfeited!
    • 7.) RATIONALE - You may post up a rationale (either technical or fundamental) for your pick but it is not required. This is optional for everyone.
    • 8.) Please DO NOT EDIT your original post with your pick! If you absolutely must choose another pick, please use a separate post and state that you are changing your original pick to something else!
    • 9.) You may choose to close out your pick at any time during the trading day. PLEASE POST YOUR OWN CLOSING PRICE! We will be using the intraday 1 minute closing price using the time stamp of your post on Stockaholics for when you closed out your pick. You will need to state the price & the time of when you closed out. I will be confirming that your closing price is correct by looking at the 1 min. intraday chart. If it is not correct, I will then post up your correct price and input that into the live spreadsheet.
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and if anyone sees someone else messing up, please correct them. Also, please look at your positions after I post the spreadsheets. I try to catch mistakes, in and out of my control, but need your help in making sure the information is accurate.

    Remember...the challenge starts at the opening bell on Friday, February 2nd!

    No daily poll tally for Stockaholics on Thursday. Credit goes to the FLAT/DOWN votes! :cool:


    Post your Vote!
    [​IMG]


    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-0.15% or less. Of course, everyone can define flat any way they choose.
    2) Up, Flat, or Down must be clearly specified in a post in order to be listed in the spreadsheet, otherwise it'll be assumed that post was not intended to be a part of the official record.
    3) It's OK to post your vote if you missed the deadline after the poll has expired and if the market has not really moved that much or especially if your late vote is opposite or flat of the S&P futures ATM. It will be up to my discretion and obviously, the more active voters will be given more leeway.
    4) Starting and ending points based on official daily ending close of the market.
    5) The primary goal of this game is to track our performance. You can consider it a contest or as a personal critiquing tool to better ones performance

    No daily poll tally for Stockaholics on Thursday. Credit goes to the FLAT/DOWN votes! :cool:

    Special shout outs go out to our 0 posted FLAT/DOWN voters for Thursday-

    That's correct. There were no posted FLAT or DOWN voters to credit for Thursday.

    There are also currently no daily poll consecutive leaders to mention in the members voting records as of now.

    @stock1234 is still our overall daily poll percentage leader for the year with a 63.64% voting accuracy in 2018 thus far!

    Here is Friday's daily challenge spreadsheet in case I'm unable to get around to it later tomorrow-
    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    NOTE: *Ignore the current "opening prices" as those will automatically correct to tomorrow's opening prices after 9:30am eastern time.*

    Good luck to all of our participants in here for tomorrow! :cool:

    @bigbear0083

    NOTE: I am just posting up tomorrow's spreadsheet a little earlier than usual in here as I have a pretty busy day ahead of me for tomorrow. I will continue adding members picks up until the 9:30am eastern time opening bell tomorrow morning so don't think you are excluded from tomorrow's challenge if I haven't listed your name up right now. I just wanted to get this spreadsheet posted in here and out of the way so I don't have to worry about getting it up at a later time tomorrow. ;)

    RCAR - Renovacare has developed a new method to repair burn damaged skin. Previously skin grafts were used but produced tight, discolored, disfigured scared skin. Renovacare's new application sprays the patients stem cells onto naked flesh prepared for the treatment. New skin grows to cover the area. The new skin looks like 'baby skin' clear and unblemished. Seventy trial applications were conducted to prove the application. The results were published in numerous magazines including "National Geographic" and professional magazines. The list of the articles is posted on the company's website. Renovacare is waiting for FDA approval. My thoughts are: once FDA approval is received the stock will go over $10 per share. And since Renovacare won a recent court battle challenging Renovacare's patent ownership the company is likely to be bought by Johnson and Johnson or another large health device corp. The purchase price, I think, will be above $15 per share. Other videos can be found on YouTube. In the last two weeks the stock has moved from around $4.50 to $7.80 per share. I own the stock.
