The halfway point for this month’s Stock Challenge has arrived.

July is proving to be a tough month for competitors. Less than 23% of this month’s Stock Challengers find themselves in positive territory — the lowest we’ve seen in 2021 thus far!

A look at this month’s Stock Challenge Index (SCI) shows just how turbulent July has been.

A Clear Front Runner

Despite the struggles, one contestant is standing tall atop this month’s Stock Challenge leaderboard.

Propelled by the stock pick “Good Gaming Inc.”, member ‘uniword’ currently holds a near 65% commanding lead over second place.

Good Gaming Inc. reported good news after receiving approval to uplist to the OTCQB. According to Investors Observer, the company also received a 66 rating, which positions the company above 66 percent of all stocks. The promising updates sent the stock on a ~227% tear in early July.

The Current Standings

July looks like it will play out as another tight race!

Aside from first and second place, there is not much distance separating the rest of the top 10. The margin between third and tenth place is only ~12%!
