Top Investment Picks Contest for 2019

Hi all,

I am compiling a list of top investment picks from the investing community. There is no prize, except bragging rights  As usual, this is meant to be a fun exercise to capture our collective ideas.

You can follow previous year’s picks here.

I have reached out privately to some of the people I regularly interact with, but if you haven’t heard from me, and would like to participate, please get in touch with me and I will add your entry. Be sure to include

  1. Your (blog) name
  2. Your top investment pick for 2019
  3. Reason why you think the pick is the best asset to invest in.

You can pick any asset you like – a stock, bond, commodity, a cryptocurrency etc. Please get your picks in before Dec 31. I will compile the list and post it on the blog in early January and track it through the year.

Best Regards,
R2R
