Beat the Street: Still Flying With Airlines

HappyAss extended his lead in The Street.com's Beat the Street contest on Wednesday.

His portfolio remains all long airlines and now stands at $297,552. In fact, HappyAss added another airline, Continental (CAL), to his portfolio for Wednesday's change.

In second place is HenryH at $295,975. HenryH is also heavy on airlines but holds China Finance Online (JRJC - Get Report) and is short Giant Interactive (GA - Get Report). That is one of only two shorts among the portfolios of the top five players.

In third place was KMR33KMR, with $293,647. In fourth was Bklnman with $293,439, and StreetTrader rounded out the top five with $292,802.

Registered players can go to the Beat the Street Web site and see what stocks the other players have chosen, and all players should keep abreast of the game in the Stockpickr forum.

The next Beat the Street game will be held next week, so if you missed this week, you're only a few days away from your next chance to play. As we near the final trading day for Week 4 of Beat the Street, we wanted to share some of the game's trends.

This week saw 5,568 contestants, and they were a decidedly bullish group in making their total 29,642 stock picks, as 23,444 buys were made, vs. 6,198 short sales.

So what were the most popular stocks? Visa (V), which just reported its first quarter as a public company, was the most popular stock among players.

Next up were Potash (POT - Get Report), First Solar (FSLR - Get Report), Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and MasterCard (MA - Get Report).

So those are the trends; stay tuned to the market and be sure to sign up for Week 5 after the close tomorrow.
