The contest is over!
If someone had invested in the S&P 500 for the 3 months, they would of had a 4% gain in 3 months, 6 people beat the stock market and 22 people lost to the stock market (last time there were only 7 people and we all lost to the market)

The winner is Forumm with a 30.45% gain over 3 months,
Coming in 2nd place (beating me by only 1%) is socalteacher with 17.82% gain,
I took 3rd place with 16.80% gain,
Platypuses took 4th with a 7.12% gain,
jbhdez took 5th with a 5.28% gain,
2Birds1Stone took 6th with a 4.15% gain (He got last place in our last competition with a 51% loss, goes to show how wild the stock market can be)

Last place goes to AJColeman, with a 32.25% loss over 3 months,
2nd to last palce goes to Cyaphas with a 20.7% loss,
3rd to last place goes to nonfinity with a 12.72% loss

It seems I'm too lazy to list out all 28 rankings, see the rankings page on investopedia to see the rest of the placings,

There was about a 63% difference between the 1st and last place, we had 28 people compete, good job to everyone! and I hope everyone had fun!

I won't be making a 3rd game right now, but someone else can feel free to make one, or I might make one at some point in the future. Also, for whoever else makes them, are there any rules that everyone thinks should be changed? I had the default rules chosen, and I believe there were some complaints.

If you make another game I'll have a go.

I've only ever bought two individual stocks IRL, one went up 25% in 12 months and the other went down 20% in the same 12 months.  I had almost twice as much in the one that fell though so I basically broke even!

What a relief not to have to keep trying to pick winning stocks. Although I was gaining back a lot of ground I lost early on - until the last day when my final purchase of the game took an 8% dive...
