A message from 7investing team

What stocks do you believe will be the best performers in 2024? Submit your portfolio, and our winner will receive a $1,000 Amazon gift card and a free year of 7investing!

Our mission is to empower individuals to invest in their future. Our Stock Picking Competition is a lot of fun and a great way to see the stocks other investors have high conviction in. And that's a great starting point for your research and real-money portfolio!

7investing is partnering with Stock Card to launch this competition. To enter, submit a Stock Card portfolio with up to seven of your favorite stocks (and you can adjust them by buying and selling throughout the year). Participating is free, but please have only one portfolio per person.

The winning portfolio will be based upon the total return -- including dividends -- from the starting price until the market closes on Feb 28, 2025. Portfolios with just one stock will have a 100% allocation to that stock. Portfolios with multiple stocks will be allocated.

We hope you enjoy our Stock Picking Competition! Come back often to see the real-time performance of your portfolio or our leaderboard and all of the potential Top Stocks for 2024.

Good luck!

- The 7investing Team

What is the contest's goal?

The contest aims to test our relatively long-term stock picking and research skills by creating a portfolio that achieves the highest weighted average gain compared to all other participants. The goal is also to have fun and learn about 7investing's stock research methodology while gaining a chance to win real cash and prizes.

Remember that winning means you've earned the bragging rights that you outperformed some of the best investors in the 7invetsing and Stock Card community.

How do you calculate contest portfolios' performance?

  • Each stock/ETF pick return: When you create a portfolio on Stock Card and add stocks or ETFs, it automatically calculates the return on your investment using the buy price and the current price. Portfolios are refreshed every 30 minutes to calculate each pick's return regularly.

  • Overall portfolio return: Stock Card also calculates the weighted average return of all orders in each portfolio and shows the result on top of each portfolio page. To win the contest, your weighted average portfolio return has to be higher than all other participants.

Who can participate?

  • Who: Anyone can join the contest if you are at least eighteen (18) years old at entry and create a free account on
