These are the March Value Contest submissions. If you are not aware, we will select TWO WINNERS from the 11 submissions. The first place will win $500, and the second place will win $200. Every qualified submission will be awarded $50 for sharing the ideas.
Please read these analyses and let us know your opinion on the quality of the value ideas. Winners will be announced at the beginning of April.
All submissions will be evaluated in the area of Business Quality, Financial Strength, Proven Management Capability, Undervalued, Presentation, Readers' Rating and Comments. Each criteria has a 1-5 rating.
How to Get a Higher Score?
Two factors are considered for the scores. The quality of the analysis itself and the quality of the area that is analyzed. An example here, if the company has very good management, AND you prove clearly with your analysis, you get higher rating. If the company does have good management, but you fail to convince the readers, you still get low points.
What if you did not win?
Since we can only have two winners each month, it is obvious that not every one call win. You will still be paid $50 if the research is published on GuruFocus exclusively. Please continue to participate for the coming months, and you will have chance to win.
Furthermore, this contest may help you to do more research in the stocks you own or want to buy. The reward from investing in the stock will be much higher than the prize here.
If you have not, please submit your best value ideas.
