Yet Another Stock Contest

also known as

Gallery of Fools

The Rules

The goal of this contest is to guess on what day the CATP stock price will first reach $100.
If there is a stock split after 1 January 1997, this contest will be adjusted accordingly, i.e. if there is a 2 to 1 split, the contest is over when the price reaches $50.

(Now that Novell has taken over CTP, this means that the NOVL stock price will need to reach $149.7. Fat chance...)

Everybody with a CTP UNIX (email) account could enter the contest once. (You were kindly requested not to enter the contest under somebody else's name.)
You could enter the contest, or change your entry at any time, as long as the current stock price was $50 or less (corrected for stock splits). This meant that if the price rose to $98, and then dropped to $47, you could have changed your entry again.

The Prize

This contest will actually have a real prize! The winner of the contest will receive a CTP Stock Contest T-Shirt in the size of your choice.
(But personally I think that Eternal Fame® is cooler!)

(This offer is still valid. In the unlikely case that the CATP stock price ever hits $100, I will try to track the winner down and send him or her the T-shirt.)

Entering

Entering this Stock Contest, or changing your entry, is no longer possible. Deleting your entry is also not possible, no matter how embarrassed you are. (If a significant amount of money makes its way to me, your entry could be accidentally lost, though. ;-) )
(Do check out [link]And Yet Another Stock Contest and [link]The Final Stock Contest, though!)

The Situation (as of 20 Aug 2019)

The last known stock price is really really low. (No, we did not have a stock split!) Still a LOT to go.

If the stock price would reach $100 today (yeah, right!), the winner would be: Francois Molliere.
