CNBC Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge - Friday, Week 6
[Scroll to the bottom for answers to today's Bonus Bucks trivia questions.]
Happy Boxing Day, everyone, and welcome back from the 1.5 day midweek market holiday. As things currently stand, we've still got our dear reader and last year's 3rd prize winner Bradford Pine in the top 15 overall (and behind only one member of the seemingly infinitely large Lewis family). I'm happy to report many more of you continue to write in with details of your own rarefied rankings hovering just beneath the leaderboard.
If you're one of those nearly-top-tier performers or you've been on a particular tear lately and plan to start burning up the leaderboard shortly, drop us a line and let us get a look at you.
We're into the final day of this abbreviated Week 6, which means that today marks the first allocation for Week 7. Traders with participating portfolios can return here this afternoon between 2:00 and 3:00 for that first set of allocations.
Update: For group strategy participants, let's split up between the ultrabull and ultrabear ETF baskets going into Monday of Week 7, according to ZIP code. If yours ends in an odd number, use the ultrabulls. For evens, use the ultrabears.
- Odd: URE, UWM, UYG, RFL (Financial/Real Estate Ultrabull)
- Even: SRS, TWM, SKF, RFN (Financial/Real Estate Ultrabear)
If you're using more than one portfolio, divide them evenly among ultrabulls and ultrabears, with any remainder allocated according to ZIP.
Have a great weekend!
