Fantasy stocks, Fantasy sports

Over 160 players took part in this year's 𝗙𝗔𝗡𝗧𝗔𝗦𝗬 𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗦 𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗚𝗨𝗘 Over 200 stocks were selected with the 5 most popular being: 𝗡𝗜𝗢 (63x), 𝗔𝗺𝗮𝘇𝗼𝗻 (21x), 𝗙𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗹𝘆 (20x), 𝗧𝗲𝘀𝗹𝗮 (18x), 𝗝𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗮 (17x).

The majority of players rightfully opted to pick volatile growth stocks understanding that steady would not be enough to win this 3 month short format league! Due to the volatile nature of these 𝗚𝗥𝗢𝗪𝗧𝗛 𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗦, there have been a lot of major changes to the leader board and the final scoreboard is no exception!

That said, 8 of last month's top 10 have retained their positions at the summit of the league! However, there have been some changes to where they began the month and this includes our 3 𝗛𝗜𝗚𝗛𝗘𝗦𝗧 𝗙𝗜𝗡𝗜𝗦𝗛𝗘𝗥𝗦!

This year's 𝗙𝗔𝗡𝗧𝗔𝗦𝗬 𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗦 𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗚𝗨𝗘 𝗪𝗜𝗡𝗡𝗘𝗥 is NACHOKOLARI who has switched places with last months leader 4KINRITE who finishes in second place. The final prize goes to ASHRAFALIE who has jumped up from 5th place to finish 3rd!

Big 𝗖𝗢𝗡𝗚𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗨𝗟𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗦 to all 3 of these investors and well deserved with all 3 players averaging returns of over 100% over the past 3 months! Not only have they beaten the other 157 players but they're returns have outperformed the NASDAQ (which grew 10%) 10 fold since the start of the competition.

I'd also like to point out that everybody who made the top 10 leaderboard has done exceptionally well and I would have thought scores like that (+80%) would have been enough to place in the top 3! This just goes to show the 𝗤𝗨𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗧𝗬 of stock picking involved in this year's competition so once again 👏

Below is a list of the 10 𝗕𝗘𝗦𝗧 𝗣𝗘𝗥𝗙𝗢𝗥𝗠𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗦 from those picked by our players:

1) Transocean (RIG) - 174%

2) 22nd Century (XXII) - 159%

3) Palantir (PLTR) - 147%

4) Lemonade (LMND) - 141%

5) Jumia (JMIA) - 123%

6) Nordstrom (JWN) - 118%

7) Farfetch (FTCH) - 113%

8) Coty (COTY) - 106%

9) Aston Martin (AML) - 100%

10) NIO (NIO) - 81%

Shout out to this year's 𝗪𝗜𝗡𝗡𝗘𝗥 "Nachokolari" whose stocks all made this list!

Also, below is a more basic but vaster leaderboard showing the 𝗧𝗢𝗣 𝟭𝟬𝟬 𝗣𝗟𝗔𝗬𝗘𝗥𝗦 and their final standings:

It's pretty crazy to think that I decided to run this little game over a mulled cider in Krakow. After eToro agreed to provide 𝗣𝗥𝗜𝗭𝗘𝗦 for the winners, I immediately drafted up the logo and posted it along with the rules! Thanks to everybody for the positive response, I know that there were some teething problems in the beginning but if I'm honest I hadn't expected almost 200 players to enter!

I'll be running the league again in February and I've got many ideas on how to make it 𝗕𝗜𝗚𝗚𝗘𝗥 𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗕𝗘𝗧𝗧𝗘𝗥 than before! Please feel free to drop me a message so that we can discuss ways to make this year's fantasy stocks league even more engaging and fun for everybody!
