February Value Idea Contest Opens; The First $1,000 Award Announcement

January 22, 2013 | About:

GuruFocus’ Value Idea Contest is on again. Do you have a favorite stock you know is a good value deal? Submit your analysis of it and post it under “Value Idea Contest.” Our judges will select the most thorough, compelling and well-researched value investment idea and present the winner $500.

If an idea doubles within a year, the contestant will win more. This month, GuruFocus is awarding author Jean-Francois Nobert (Ecotycoon) $1,000 for his idea, Research In Motion (RIMM), which doubled since he submitted in July.

Learn more about how GuruFocus judges submissions, or read former contest submissions, in July’s winner announcement here.

These are the articles that were submitted in July, to give you an idea of the level of analysis you should aim for:

Qualified authors will also receive $100 per submission. The submissions will be evaluated monthly. The deadline for each month’s submissions is the end of the month. Please submit here.

Tempted to write anotherRIMM article. I think it can double again in the next12 months.

The options I mentioned in that article are up over 1000%. Close to 2000% in reality.

EDIT: Confused ..... I did a value investing article on RIMM that doubled also ?!?!?!?

It would be nice if there was a more regular announcement schedule for the contest. It seems announcement of contest results/winners/doubles is intermittent no?

Anyway, thanks for reiterating the $500 prize for the highest scored article.

BTW, congrats Ecotycoon!
