Thanks to everyone who helped with the selection of random numbers for Benny’s Bunch – now we can find out which stocks you’ve chosen for Benny!
First, for transparency, let me explain how the full list of companies was created:
- Starting with all companies within the ASX 300 as at 1 November 2018 (297 companies in total)
- Companies ranked in reverse alphabetical order (Z’s at the top, A’s at the bottom)
- Companies beginning with the letters B (Benny), F (Frankie), I (Ian) and G (Gary) were pulled out and moved to the top of the list, in that order (this shuffling was done to give an extra layer of randomness to your number selections).
I haven’t shared the complete list here, so that we can continue to use it for future stock picks for Benny’s Bunch, but you can replicate the list pretty easily and compare the numbers below if you’re really keen.
But much more interesting is to see which stocks your random numbers have selected – and here they are!
* Note 299 was actually selected by Tom, but as there were only 297 companies (not 300 as I expected!) I’ve taken the 2nd last company on the list…
