"The Next Great StockPickr" competition invites college and graduate students
to submit a one-minute video presenting and analyzing a stock they believe
will show the most gains that year. Entries were submitted online and the
winning video was selected by TheStreet's founder and chief markets
commentator, Jim Cramer, and his research team.
"Alex's video submission on Apache was the perfect combination of a
well-thought out thesis along with enthusiasm and energy. I was so impressed
with Alex's work that I asked him to write a piece about how he found Apache
and to help us get more young people involved in investing. He's terrific,"
said Mr. Cramer. "He represents the next generation of stock pickers—I've
always said it's important for young people to start investing in companies

received a one-year free subscription to The Chairman's Club, which

"Winning this competition and meeting with Jim Cramer was a dream come true,"

away from our meeting with a lot of ideas I can take with me and incorporate
into my current studies and future plans in finance and stock picking."
