I believe the point of the contest (as he said) is to "practice for our own eventual retirement, and to learn about investing strategies for retirement".I thought up a strategy I planned to use in retirement. I went and bought the stocks I would theoretically use in retirement. Now I'm going to wait and watch the price over a year, after I explained my plan.Now I'm going to read the other posts in the contest about why they decided upon their strategy in retirement. Hopefully someone will comment on my strategy at some point in time, and will perhaps give me insight into why my ideas won't work.I think it's a fine idea. It's not simply a "see how much money you end up with", but more like "Explain what you're doing, we'll all watch it together and discuss them". If it was just about the amounts at the end, I'd agree with you. As it is, I think you missed the point.
