Investment Skills Quiz: Go Long and Go Short for Five Years



You are tired of reading all the theory on growth investing and Wall Street is in a perpetual down cycle. What to do? You sign on for a five-year mission to kidnap the Pope from the Vatican and replace him with Madonna dressed as the Pope. Yes, THAT Madonna Times are desperate.

As payment, Mission Control will allow you to short $10 million worth of Company A or B while simultaneously buying $10 million of either Company A or B. You choose.
