Who doesn’t love a good giveaway?
I know I do! Do an easy step or two and you can find yourself with some great prizes.
Giveaways tend to be stuff like books or gift cards. Sometimes it’s a great prize (like the Chromecast we gave away recently).
How about a giveaway that gives you ownership in a company? Interested, huh?
Nvestly is doing just that!
Nvestly is getting the word out on their social investing platform. To help that along they are giving away $2,500 in Apple shares (roughly 25 shares of AAPL). Yes, they are giving away ownership in Apple (albeit a tiny bit of ownership).
Here are the winning breakdowns:
1st Prize – 15 shares of AAPL (worth about $1,500)
2nd Prize – 7 shares of AAPL (about $700)
3rd Prize – 3 shares of AAPL (about $300)
The winners will be gifted the stocks via www.shareswell.com. The giveaway runs from November 10, 2014 through November 27, 2014 (Thanksgiving).
To enter, and you should, just follow the directions in the Rafflecoptor box below (that’s how the entries are tallied):
What is Nvestly
I don’t post about many giveaways that aren’t my own. Look, you don’t come here to find out about giveaways on the internet.
But I took a look at what Nvestly was and I was intrigued and thought it was a cool idea you should know about (and Apple shares, yeah!).
Wouldn’t it be great if you could see some top portfolios from investors who are doing well?
Nvestly gives its users a social aspect to investing. When you join you can see what top investors are investing in and see how they do. You can add your portfolio as well to see how you compare. I know what you’re thinking – “why would I want to let people know how much I’m investing?” Yeah, that would be a little awkward to let everyone peek inside your portfolio like that. But no one will see how much money you put into your investments. Everything is just represented in percentages. When you take the dollar amount off it makes it so you can really compare yourself to investors that have access to a lot more money. And if you aren’t comfortable with even that you can make your portfolio private so no one else can see it.
Why is This a Cool Idea?
We tend to invest in a vacuum. It’s rare you see someone’s whole portfolio. You might hear about a couple of successful investments if you’re lucky. With Nvestly you’re able to compare your portfolio, and its performance, with top investors to see how you match up. That’s a pretty powerful way to tune up your portfolio (or pat yourself on the back for a great job). Count me interested.
Of course giving away actual stock is a pretty cool idea too!
