Greetings, and welcome to yet another edition of The FoxForceJournal.

Our featured stock is the CaryleGroup,LP. Picked by our esteemed CFO, and my good friend blesto. The stock has been on an absolute tear since his start price on 8/20/12 of $25.34 based on Caps.      Leading to an impressive +44.71% stock gain in the contest.

I also happen to know, that as of 2/5/13 his own personal portfolio consisted of 12.2% in CG,And I'm pretty sure its higher now! (a round of applause floods the gallery).

 CALCULATION ON THE DIVIDEND FROM YAHOO (finally, we get a divi payer).

$1,000 purchased 39.2 shares on 8/20/12 @$25.50

On 11/15/12 CG paid out a .16 divi paying out $6.3 putting the initial investment at $994.7

Share price as of today puts the value of shares worth $1437.46 (note this does not factor in reinvested dividends)

Now Scruffys 40,000 shrs are worth- 1,020,000 start.

163,200 in dividends.

So todays total $1,630,000.

Sorry if I screwed up any of the math but I have a tasty burger that needs attending to.


And keep an eye out for the next-
