Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
Today's the day that African Potash gets slung from the NEX markets or has the rules bent for them, so in normal circumstances it would sponsor this week's contest. But there is an even better sponsor, step forward Roger Lawson of ShareSoc who will donate some of the Globo shares he owns as a prize. Natch, Ramper Lawson sold most of his Globo shares before telling readers to sell, but he still has some left and even offered to help the management take the company forward.
The challenge: We're looking for exemplary examples of sheer stupidity from those founts of brilliance; the Bulletin Board Morons who dwell on the cesspits that are LSE.co.uk, III.co.uk and ADVFN.co.uk. The deadline to post your entries in the comments section below is midnight, Sunday 23 July.
Tom Winnifrith notes: The above article has been revised after publication as per my agreement with Roger Lawson here. Although Roger Lawson may not have reported his ownership of shares in a company when writing about them in all cases, or did not report his trading in those shares, as may be considered best practice, I acknowledge that the rules about ShareSoc publications did not require such repetition and I acknowledge that he acted without any intention of making any financial gain to himself and indeed no such gain was made.
