And Yet Another Stock Contest

Remember [link]Yet Another Stock Contest? Well, I guess we were a little (a little??) optimistic. Let's try again, with a somewhat more realistic target.
You think this is still too optimistic? Try [link]this one.

The Rules

The goal of this contest is to guess on what day the CATP stock price will first reach $10.
If there is a stock split after 1 December 2000, this contest will be adjusted accordingly, i.e. if there is a 2 to 1 split, the contest is over when the price reaches $5. Similarly, if the stock reverse splits 1 to 3, we need to reach $30.

(Now that Novell has taken over CTP, this means that the NOVL stock price will need to reach $14.97. It's been close already, but not quite there...)

Anybody can enter the contest once. (You are kindly requested not to enter the contest under somebody else's name.)
You may enter the contest, or change your entry at any time.

The Prize

The Grand Prize of this contest will be Eternal Fame®. That's way better than a T-shirt, isn't it? ;-)


Sorry, too many spammers.

The Situation (as of 28 Jun 2017)

If the stock price would reach $10 today, the winner would be: James Kener.
