Week 3: Making up ground on the stocks…sort of

Well, the football betting made up some ground last week on the stocks.  Or, more specifically, it lost less ground.  Four of the five stocks dropped this week, but they still are in positive figures on the year.  My NFL prognosticating, however, also leaves room for improvement.  I went 7-9 on the week, dropping into negative figures overall, down $200.  The only bright spot is that the NFL betting closed the gap on the stocks by about $160.  Here are the numbers for the stocks:

Company, Starting Price, Current Price, Shares, Current Total

Thompson Creek Metals, $12.55, $12.28, 408, $5,010.24

Infosys Technologies Ltd, $46.78, $48.52, 109, $5,288.68

General Cable Corp, $39.59, $39.56, 129, $5,103.24

Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold, $70.37, $71.09, 73, $5,189.57

Fortescue Metals Group, $3.70, $3.70, 1,384, $5,120.08

Total:       $25,711.81

Week 2:  -$359.23  (overall: +$111.81)

Now, here are the figures so far for the football side:

Week 2:  7-9 (-$200)   Overall Record: 15-17

Total:  $25,400   (overall:  -$200.00)

Let’s hope I do better in week 3 and can get back into positive numbers.  Here are my picks for Week 3:

Kansas City     +9.5     Philadelphia

Green Bay        -6.5      St. Louis

Minnesota        -7          San Francisco

Atlanta              +4         New England

Houston            -4         Jacksonville

Chicago             -2          Seattle

New Orleans     -6         Buffalo

Oakland              +1        Denver

Cincinnati          +4        Pittsburgh

Arizona               -2.5     Indianapolis

Dallas                   -9          Carolina

Tennessee         +2.5      NY Jets

Miami                  +6          San Diego

Tampa Bay         +6.5      NY Giants

Detroit                 +6.5      Washington

Baltimore           -13.5      Cleveland

Check back next week to see if I can manage to get back into positive figures.
