There is a friendly competition over at SSI to pick the top 3 stocks for 2018. At the end of the year, the highest average percentage will be the winner, ie each pick will have equal weight. No change of mind after the first week and picks will be locked as if you are holding for the entire year. No prize either, probably bragging rights! Lol

I have selected my picks which are also my current top 3 holdings. Why would I select anything else? I should be confident of my current portfolio. My picks for 2018 with their 2017 closing prices are:

1) UOI $7.28
2) DBS $24.85
3) Micro-Mechanics $2.11

Let see how it goes. It is all in good fun. What are your top 3 picks?


Rules added:

1) Last submission is tonight 12am 8 Jan
2) Dividends/Rights are too tedious and complicated to compute, so they are excluded. Stock split/consolidation/Bonus may be considered as it might decrease/increase the price significantly.
3) If any pick is delist or suspended, then the last traded price will be taken.
4) No $0.001 stocks as it will never go lower than that.

Creative has now returned 817% since close price of 1.07 in December 29 2017.

Already beat the top stock of 2017 - Delong, which returned 813% in 2017.
