A quick Melbourne Cup day puzzle

November 6 marks a significant day in Australia – with the Melbourne Cup; and in the United States – with the Midterm Elections. At the time of writing this blog, neither had yet taken place, though many were making bets on the outcomes for sport.

To participate in the excitement, your author thought he might contribute with a quick puzzle for readers to ponder. The answer will be posted in a couple of days.

Below are two stock prices over the last two years, A and B. One of them is Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN). And one of them is a stock from the Montgomery Global portfolio.

Can you guess which stock is A and which is B?

    Roger. Thank you for your regular updates, insights and long term investment strategy. It helps one to sleep at night in an increasingly volatile world , in all sectors.

    • Thanks Tony.
      To be clear, they are both individual stocks. One is AMZN. And the other is a stock from one of our Montgomery Global portfolios.
      We’ll post the answer at the end of the week.
