#1 Each Week

Here is how our StockGame fundraiser works:

  • The cost to invest is $25/certificate.
  • Select 5 of the 50 stocks listed (a random pick option is also available).
  • The Game will run for 8 consecutive weeks, from January 9 to March 3, 2023.
  • At the beginning of the Game each portfolio is valued at an imaginary $100,000 ($20,000/stock).
  • At the close of the market each Friday during the contest each purchased certificate will be revalued based on the closing prices. The highest valued certificate each week will be awarded $25.
  • At the end of the final week of the contest, the 3 portfolios that have the largest values will win $1,000, $500, and $200, respectively.

In years past, I did not have the ability to essentially rank all of the individual portfolios in real time. I am now able to do this within about 90 seconds from the time that I download the 50 stock portfolio values. It is really amazing to see the changes in rankings that go on during the course of the day. At various times on Friday the top 10 finishers changed places many times.

The winning portfolio for this week is valued at $9,035.93 less than last week’s winning portfolio. Last week $2091.33 separated the #1 and #2 portfolios. This week that number was reduced to only $332.43, and at one point during the day it was within $50.00.

Today, only 9 of our 50 stocks are ahead of last Friday’s closing prices. Our big loser this week was International Flavor and Fragrances IFF which was down nearly 20%. This week’s big gainer was Kyndryl Holdings KD which was up about 20% from last week.

The top 3 portfolios this week all have the Lucid Group LCID. Here is a link to the Lucid Motors website where you might like to check out some of their vehicular offerings.

If any of you decide to purchase a vehicle, I’d be extremely happy to accept a ride, my contact info follows.

So once again, we say congratulations to Revva Benovitz who’s portfolio on certificate #4311, worth $133,096.03, is our weekly winner. However, it is quite clear that it is not a done deal for Revva. Three weeks remain and much can certainly happen in that time. It was possible to beat Revva by $8,023.04 with a certificate that would have been worth $141,119.07 had you picked Kyndryl Holdings KD, Lucid LCID, NVIDIA NVDA, National Instruments NATI, and On Semiconductor ON.

On the other end of things had you picked Dollar General DG, InMode INMD, J & J Snack Foods JJSF, International Flavors & Fragrances IFF, and First Majestic Silver AG, your portfolio not performing so well would have been valued at $88,601.21 . A spread of nearly $53,000 was possible.

One of the downsides of being a data entry specialist is that some participants suspect that I have something to do with their portfolio’s lack of performance. #7047 is my future son-in-law, #5125 is my wife and #4025 is my business partner….. enough said about that!

Stay tuned…more to follow soon!

Official TBI StockGame Rules

The StockGame begins when the Stock Market opens Monday, January 9, 2023, and ends when the Market closes on Friday, March 3, 2023.

Your object is to select a portfolio of five (5) different stocks listed on the front of this certificate which will appreciate as much as possible during the course of the StockGame. The 3 portfolios having the greatest value at market close on Friday, March 3, 2023 will be the winners.

Your donation of $25.00 entitles you to a (fictitious) $100,000 to invest in the common stock issue of exactly five (no more, no fewer ) of the 50 corporations listed. $20,000 will automatically be “invested” for you in each of the five stocks whose names or numbers you have checked from the official certificate form. The number of shares to be “purchased” of each of the checked stocks will be calculated based on the closing price of the issue on Friday, January 6, 2023. Fractional shares will be calculated in the purchase. On the opening day of the contest each portfolio will be valued at $100,000.

The 3 Certificates with the highest final values will win final prizes of $1000, $500, and $200. In addition, the Certificate which is worth the most on each Friday (except the last) will win a weekly prize of $25. In case of ties, prizes will be shared.

If fewer than 200 certificates are entered, Temple B’nai Israel reserves the right to award 20%, 10%, and 2% respectively of the gross receipts.

If any number but 5 stocks are checked, TBI will adjust the total to 5 selections at random. By checking the Random Select Box you instruct Temple B’nai Israel to check 5 stocks for you at random. You can wait until the Stock Market closes on Friday, January 6, 2023, to check your stocks, but if your entry is postmarked after the deadline of 11:59 pm, Sunday, January 8, 2023, TBI will ignore your choices and instead select five (5) stocks for you at random. Temple B’nai Israel is the sole computer and judge of the Stock Game and all of these rules.

DIRECTIONS: Please print your name, address, phone number and e-mail clearly on each of the Certificates you are entering and indicate the TBI Representative who sold it to you. Select 5 stocks by placing a check mark (✓) between the stock number and the stock symbol. Select your method of payment on the form. If you write a check, please make it payable to Temple B’nai Israel and put the certificate number/s on the check. Send in the original certificate/s (white) and retain the copy (yellow) for your records. Weekly standings of all certificates will be posted on the Temple B’nai Israel website (http://www.tbiwhiteoak.org).
