If you are a keen stock market watcher or just looking for some fun, consider entering The Blade's year-long stock contest in 2006. The rules and entry form will be published Sunday in the Business/Real Estate section.
Entrants will pick four stocks and be given a hypothetical $40,000, divided evenly, at the outset. Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31. The rules have other stipulations.
The paper portfolio which grows the most next year will win two round-trip airline tickets to anywhere in the continental United States and $100 in cash. Second place is $300 cash and third place is $200.
The contest is co-sponsored by the Toledo office of Smith Barney and by Central Travel of Toledo.
