“Here’s my picks for the 2018 top picks contest. I’d love to say long volatility/VIX if I could trade it for this contest, but I’m going with 2 picks one is a purely speculative one that might have a shot at winning the contest the other is a more traditional dividend growth pick. (1) GBLX – GB Sciences: Yolo! Actually, I think it’s a decent play as they are a marijuana company that is allowed to do research on marijuana for medicinal purposes. They are actually growing marijuana right now and I think it’s just a matter of time before marijuana is legal across the US. It’s a true go big or go home pick. (2) LOW – Lowe’s Companies: Dividend Champion and surprisingly enough a decent valuation which is more than I can say about a lot of the investment possibilities out there.”

  1. A very diverse set of picks this year. Interested to seeing if the crypto currencies, commodities and weed stocks can out perform more traditional holdings. Good luck to everyone!

    • Yes, I do see a change in the picks. What used to be just stocks in the past, has now turned into stocks, commodities, cryptos etc…quite a mix here and as you said, very diverse.


  2. JC says:

    Hope that the closing price from 2017 is the start price because if so GBLX is off to a good start at +20% on day 1. Should be fun to track this as the year goes on. Lots of different asset types in this years mix.

  3. This is a nice list. Some of these I am interested in and others I have no interest in. It is awesome to see the opinions of others in the community. Myself I like acquiring commodities at this point regardless if its a gold and silver play or if its an oil and gas play. I am very excited to see what lies ahead for all us in 2018. Good luck to everyone and thanks for sharing R2R.

  4. Always fun to play the “fortune teller” game. I think crypto will continue to make news in 2018. Last year my pick CCP was merged with SBRA. Not sure how that was calculated 🙂 Let’s see where we are in one year.

    • Its a fun exercise. I am not sure how to calculate the merger…so, I left it out of the overall calculations. I guess I could’ve switched to SBRA as your pick? Anyway…lets hope this year is a good one too


  5. Woho, price of my pick is up more than 20%. Nice, btw, to you use total return or price return? I’d say that price return is cheating, because companies like T and my pick, Magnolia, pay a dividend of around 3-6%; which is return, but the price will also fall because of this payment, while others don’t. Should be included if one want’s to compare, but I understand that it will mean more work :/

  6. The Board of Sampo Oyj proposes to the General annual meetingto be held 19 April 2018 a dividend of EUR 2,60 per share (2,30). The dividend propoced to paid 26 March 2018.

    Nice 13% dividend rise.
