I'm going with Reeds, Inc (REED).  They make natural sodas.  I think there's nice upside in the stock, but I'm also betting on a buyout.  I bought it earlier in the year around $1.50-$1.75, so I have skin in the game.

S&P 500 - 3,077

So many good choices, what with the recent bloodbath. I like Chinese stocks in 2019 seeing how the tariffs have punished them, and how a resolution could come next year. I like some more than JD but I think it has the best chance at doubling. Give me JD with a poor S&P as the market turmoil continues: 2310.

NBEV - As CBD drinks grow in popularity they're going to get bought out by one of the big soda companies similar to Juul and big tobacco.

S&P: 2328

I wonder how many people have done good at the game and decided, "I can do this" and have become the Eminence winner IRL.

SENS-  Eversense implantable glucose monitoring system got US approval this year and now building approvals for who can insert (now includes PAs and Nurse Practitioners)  and insurance reimbursement.
 

S&P 500 2520

Thanks for keeping this going Andrew.  :thumbup:

GE

Miserable company right now, but the parts could be worth a lot if broken up.  Contrarian boom/bust play.

S&P 2633

 

Bonfire

Footballguy
CVSI

CV Sciences

Basically just a marijuana parallel play, they specialize in CBD products.  As all this market unfolds there will be some homeruns out there and lots of losers, so swinging for the fences here.

S&P - 1850

I'm a pessimist at heart.

Placeholder entry.

1st choice if not taken above TWLO.

2nd choice BIDU.

S&P: 1666.66 (I am optimistic)

Going with LTO

My wife just texted me: let her in and I'm drunk and somehow typed in lto, and it's an actual stock.  So going with that.

Btw, her was the dog not my wife.

NEO

Cancer isn't going away anytime soon and NEO is a rapidly growing cancer diagnostic lab.

S&P: 2,750

Going with Exxon (XOM)... Oil has been miserable this last year and that is reflective in the gas company prices. My timing may be off with this being a long term play but it’s at 8 year lows. 

Edit to add: I know I can’t have two entries but if everything goes to #### KL (Kirkland Lake) is the mining company I’m eyeballing.

Just a few more hours to go!

If you have submitted an entry, please double check the spreadsheet to make sure everything is correct.

ANNOUNCE: The spreadsheet now shows me in the lead. This is due to a 1-for-20 reverse stock split, and no other reason. Really glad I didn't put any money in this pig. 😜
