HOW DO I SCORE POINTS?


If you correctly predict that a stock will rise in price you will score a point. Likewise, if you correctly predict that a stock will fall in price you will score a point. In the event of a tie, the total % change in market price of your correct answers will be used to declare the winner.




HOW DO I CLAIM MY PRIZE?


Just Pick Stocks will contact the winner using the contact details entered on entry. Prizes will be paid within one week of the quiz ending and upon confirmation and verification of the winners identification and residency.




HOW DO I DECIDE WHETHER TO BUY OR SELL?


There is no one way to decide whether to buy or sell. Judging when to buy or sell can be based on a number of factors. If you think a market is undervaluing a company and the price is too low, then Buy! If you think the price is too high, then Sell! There are many things that make up a stock price, such as people's perception of the company, the demand for its products and it's future earnings potential, to name but a few. It is your decision how you judge whether a stock is over or underpriced, this is the beauty of stock markets, everybody does it differently and there is no one way of doing things.




WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE ARE TIES?


In the event of a tie by points, the winner will be the tied player with the highest total % change in price of their correct predictions.
