We’re hoping for a large measure of market-obliterating performance during the Groundhog VII — our stock selection contest for 2013 — but the start out of the gate is a little choppy (so far).
Yes, we know it’s early. Really, really early.
But so far, a relatively small number (16%) of participants have topped the Wilshire 5000 a few weeks into our version of a Groundhog-based Iditarod.
Starting block kudos to perennial group challenger, The Mutual Investment Group of Cheney and individual entrants Jerry Warner, Susan Lynch and Larry Dix. There’s a couple of rhinos (Warren Buffett and Whitney Tilson) on the leader board — and 2011 individual champion Nick Stratigos is lurking, as usual.
