Best of The Rest: Reverse Jinx Edition

I’m very excited for the football games this weekend, although both of my picks lost yesterday. So to counteract my bad luck, I’ll be rooting for the Packers and the Ravens. It’s a foolproof plan.

  1. Thank you for the mention. I’ll go with you on the Packers but the Patriots are going to beat the Ravens. 1 out of 2 isn’t too bad for you. Can I ask you a question…Where did Evan come from?

  2. Nice list, but what, no mention of your pick, BIG (+3% YTD) in The Samurai Fund? OK, as the fund manager, I’m putting you on the watch list Daniel! lol

      Sticking to the reverse jinx theme…I’m not sure I want to bring attention to it quite yet. I’m just trying to stay away from the bottom 3. We all can’t be LEN!

      Everyone else, make sure you check out Financial Samurai’s Samurai Fund, where our random stock picks based on permutations of reader’s names (personal or site title) are used to create a mutual fund that will hopefully outperform the S&P 500 index!
