VectorVest -- Encourages Users to Play Unique Stock Picking Challenge

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - February 16, 2016) -  VectorVest, the most powerful tool for analyzing stock performance for more than 27 years, has announced an update to its exciting nationwide stock picking contest. The VectorVest Stock Picking Challenge will award cash prizes in the amounts of $1,250, $2,500 and $5,000 every month. The contest has no-obligation, is free to enter, and is open to everyone over the age of 18. It is an easy, risk-free way to learn how the market operates. Contestants can pick five shares, and by the end of the month, the participants with the most profit will win the cash prizes. A live leaderboard keeps track of all the competitors.

"This is a great opportunity for both new investors and long-time stock pickers to have fun and to win a little extra cash as they become more familiar with the stock market," said Angel Clark, Stock Picking Challenge Administrator. "The benefits don't just stop at the prize money. When people sign up for the contest, they'll also be given exclusive access to great investing resources, including our Stock Picking Blog, free stock analysis reports, top-performing stock picks from the leaders, investing videos and more."

Founded by academic mathematician Dr. Bart DiLiddo in 1978, VectorVest is a highly developed investment tool that features numerous stock charting and analytical enhancements to help traders manage their portfolios. The system has since been revolutionized and now has the unique ability to track thousands of shares simultaneously and compare them with 20+ years of historical data to return fast and accurate information on current market trends. Its structure is designed to answer three primary questions: what a stock is really worth; how safe a stock is; and whether to buy, sell, or hold that stock.

While monitoring thousands of stockpiles daily, the system calculates two measures of value for each stock in its database. A first measure is Value, the current worth, which is determined by such factors as cash flow, earnings, earnings growth, profitability, inflation, and interest rates. The second measure is Relative Value (RV), which identifies a stock's potential for long-term price growth projected three years out, computed by an analysis that factors in AAA Corporate Bond Rates and risk. There are numerous investment strategies that may be applied to the VectorVest data, but regardless of the strategy and current market conditions, this exceptional tool has proven to consistently return highly accurate and impressive portfolio growth with its clear-cut buy/sell signals.

VectorVest has been recognized with numerous awards, most recently the Stocks & Commodities magazine Readers' Choice Awards as well as Forbes' Best of Web Award. Founder Dr. Bart DiLiddo appears frequently on radio and TV shows, such as, "The Money Show," and regularly shares his insights in Investor Alliances Magazine. The company has grown into an internationally successful enterprise, encompassing markets in the U.S., Canada, Australia, U.K., Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, and India.
