A note from James Altucher:Every weekend I send an email to Jim Cramer and several hedge fund managers about the most interesting portfolios posted on Stockpickr that week. Usually those portfolios not only list stocks according to atheme but also offer significant analysis as to why the stocks are cheap.Here are some examples: Here's the challenge: Build a portfolio at Stockpickr.com with greatanalysis, and send me the link. Each great portfolio (with analysis)will get posted on TheStreet.com with your byline (as a "StockpickrGuest Columnist") and will be included in my email I send to Jim and the otherhedge fund managers on my list.
