Top Stocks For 2009 Competition Finish

by Mike Holman

At the beginning of this year I entered into battle with some other bloggers to pick the top 4 hot stocks of 2009. My picks basically reflected a gamble on oil prices going up since I picked a bunch of junior oil companies.

BCF.to – Bronco Energy. Purchase price $1.27.

HOC.to – Holly Corp Purchase price $3.65

TOG.to – TriStar Oil and Gas Purchase price $11.41

CLL.to – Connacher Oil Gas Purchase price $0.74

While the results for the contest aren’t really important since I didn’t win.  Here are the results in order of best to worst finish. Congratulations to intelligentspeculator.net for being the big winner in 2009.

  1. IntelligentSpeculator, 81.56%
  2. WildInvestor, 68.57%
  3. Wheredoesallmymoneygo, 56.14%
  4. TheFinancialBlogger, 41.37%
  5. FourPillars, 35.16%
  6. DividendGrowthInvestor, 18.17%
  7. Million Dollar Journey, 16.05%
  8. MyTradersJournal, -0.24%
  9. ZachStocks, -9.36%

I would have thought a 35% return would result in a better spot than 5th place but that`s the way it goes.  The TSX was up 31% this year so beating the index is nice but considering how risky the stocks I bought are – someone would be better off just buying the index.
