B1G Stock Market Game Week 4


This week’s B1G stock game premieres at 9:19 a.m. EDT. You central hour pagans will just have to wait another 60 minutes to honor Scott Frost’s conference record.

Each week when I update the spreadsheet for this game, I relive the comment sections from the previous week. Although many are fun variations of “HODL”, I come across a few posts that give me joy. No joy in the classic sense, of course. Unless you mean the classic OTE sense of laughing at the optimism someone was stupid enough to bring to the comments section. I want to share some with you today:

“… The teams in my portfolio are all (and should be) playing canned tomatoes, so I’m hoping for a bump next week.” -Transient Buckeye, Minnesota shareholder (-28.4%).

“It’s time to do something even dumber. Sell ​​4 Northwesterns [+20.5%], sell 2 Illinois [+12.5%]. “-steelinj, who really equalized by buying back Rutger shares which gained 17.3%.

“Buy 5 Indiana shares[sic] BUY LOW SELL BABY HIGH. IUinVA, 9.9% value dropper with speed.

“Common sense says I should hold my 2 MSU[+3.0%] for the dividend, so I’m not gonna do that … Buy 4 Wisconsin[-6.9%{-ni.ce%}]. Take me to the top floor. -theguyfromy-wega, which should have a new elevator operator.

  1. Start with an initial investment equal to the average of all current investors. This week, it’s 565 Delaney dollars ($ 565 DD).
  2. Select the team stocks to buy.
  3. After the week’s games, sell, hold and / or buy for the following week.
  4. The maximum number of team shares you can own is 50.
  5. The game pays a dividend of 10% of the current prices in weeks 4, 7, 10, and 13 for any shares you have held for three consecutive weeks.

The value of the team’s shares comes from Teamrankings.com. Each team’s value is the inverse of their current rating (out of 130 FBS teams), so team # 2 costs $ 129, # 6 costs $ 125, # 129 costs $ 2.

Which teams should I invest in?

Buy low, sell high. Or vice versa. Buy shares of your own team or feel fat buying shares of your rival. While no one can predict The Formula perfectly, teams ‘scores are mostly based on their game results, their opponents, and their opponents’ opponents.

Some players are diversifying and others are based on a single title. You will find your niche. If you don’t like the dartboard method, you might want to check out Dead Read B1G stock report.

Dividends have been paid to your money markets, so use them wisely. For lurkers who haven’t returned since week 1, you may want to reinvest those dividends or risk being left behind. The next dividend payout is week 7, you must own the shares from that week to be eligible.

The opening bell has rang, here are the stock prices for this week:

Illinois 54; Indiana 82; Iowa 120; Maryland 106; Michigan 127; Michigan State 103; Minnesota 73; Nebraska 101; North West 53; Ohio state 125; State of pennsylvania 116; Purdue 98; Rutger 95; Wisconsin 108
