Diagnose the Dow: End of Week 4

Another week has gone by for the "Diagnose the Dow" stock contest, but the top 10 has seen only minor changes as participants make their stock picks.

The gap between first and second has slowly but surely been closing. Two weeks ago, derrickdchan sat atop the list with a profit more than $11,000 ahead of second place. This week the profit difference is only $2,500.

Tfazmd managed to squeak past biglegal97 to land in fourth, while soaresja did the same to coloradojack for sixth. Kenigsberg and dynamicoli are both gone from the top 10, replaced by beavtori and jim30082. Kenigsberg had a big loss with Rigel Pharmaceuticals, dropping down to 25; however, JMueksch made money off of Rigel by shorting the company.

For the most part, the same names continue to show up in the top 10. Think you know better? Register and make your own picks!
