In 2006, we sponsored immensely popular fantasy stock-picking games, called the Zacks Stock Challenge and Zacks Options Challenge. Each quarter, thousands of Zacks customers managed a virtual portfolio to prove their stock picking abilities. The results were amazing. We discovered that Zacks customers can find winning stocks more impressively than many professionals. The winners received some of the best products Zacks has to offer- tools to help them make fantasy-style returns in the real world.

So now, we're putting our money where our mouth is. Our 2007 contest will be a yearlong search for the best of the best, called the Zacks $100,000 Challenge.

Win a $100,000 Dream Job

The lawyers came up with a long list of Terms and Conditions, but here's the basic idea. Prove your stock picking ability with the returns in your virtual portfolio. Every month, we'll invite top players to write their own personal blog on Zacks.com where they'll share strategies, analysis, and thoughts about the market with other investors.

We'll track your market-beating trades and also the popularity of your Player Blog. If you show the kind of performance that keeps users coming back to read about your picks, you'll be in line for the Grand Prize.

At year-end, our distinguished panel of Zacks judges will review the top 100 players to select a winner. The player with the best combination of stock picking performance and Player Blog popularity will become a featured newsletter editor for Zacks.com- with a $100,000 yearly salary.

There's only one $100K salary available, but we're also giving valuable prizes to 9 more top finishers. Finish in the top ten and you'll get a Two Year Subscription to Zacks Elite, our premium website featuring market commentary and winning stock picks from Ben Zacks, PLUS two years' access to Research Wizard, our full-featured stock screening desktop software.

Everybody wins, though, with the no-nonsense advice you'll find on the Player Blog. Every day, the top players will be giving you the strategic thinking behind stock picks that put them way ahead of the market. And there can be no question that they know what they're talking about. You'll see every trade they've made that proves their stock picking prowess.

So you get a steady stream of useful stock tips, and a chance at a $100,000 dream job, and it's absolutely free to play! What are you waiting for? Sign up now!
