Follow Heard on the Street Writers' Picks

Don’t you hate it when a financial pundit makes a prediction, but fails to mention both a time and a number in the same sentence? And then, if he or she gets it wrong, it’s on to the next bright idea.

Heard on the Street does things a bit differently. Our stock picking contest, now in its sixth year, will run for a full year with our wins and losses updated constantly. Over the last three weeks of August our 15 columnists based in six global cities will give you our best ideas in the form of a column in which we lay out our argument for or, in the case of a “short” idea, against a stock.

Will our picks make us look like geniuses or will they age like a glass of milk in the Sahara? Please check back frequently as the picks roll in, and over the course of the year to see which columnist will walk away with the bragging rights for the highest-performing pick.

Data through Aug. 11. More picks will be added through the end of August.
