No April’s fool post today, just our stock picks contest Q1 results… I thought of writing something weird to make you laugh but didn’t come with something better than my Primerica post from last year… I promise to be original and come up with something good for next year 😉
In the meantime, I can’t tell you how disappointed I am with my stock picks for 2010. I’m obviously not in a good position to date as many of my fellow bloggers are enjoying better returns. On a positive note, none of my stock picks are negative and I am really proud of this!
RIM is regaining investor confidence as they are showing better results of late and many industry analysts believe the best is yet to come from the Blackberry maker. I just can’t help it, I’m a sucker for this small phone. I consider it as my 3rd child now 😉
Manulife did a great job too and investors have started to think that investing in an insurance company is not a bad idea. The company was also wise enough to stay away from more bad news which bodes well for Q2.
Goldman Sachs is showing strong numbers but the US market is still shy. I guess we will have to wait until the second half of the year to see the stock climb.
Emerging markets are have gone sideways for a while with small fluctuations. International concerns regarding Dubai World, Greece, Portugal and Spain didn’t help more fragile economies either. Let’s hope to see some strong numbers coming out of China and India!
Here are the overall results for everybody. Since I had a few readers that were kind enough to contribute, I have decided to include their picks and returns in the second chart.
