Contest: Coke Defeats SpaceDev

Voting for these two picks ended several days ago, but I didn’t have time to post the results until today.

No surprise here. Coca – Cola (KO) crushed SpaceDev (SPDV.OB) in the most recent round of widest moat contest voting. The final tally: 100% of the vote went to Coke. SpaceDev failed to garner a single vote.

Coke will advance to the final round where it will face Microsoft (MSFT) and a third wide moat company that has yet to be determined. There were some very good email votes this time around. Remember, the person who picks the company that ends up winning the wide moat contest isn’t the only one who will win a copy of Benjamin Graham’s Security Analysis. The author of the best email vote will also receive a free copy of Ben Graham’s magnum opus.

The final pair of entries will be unveiled during the next podcast.

Thank you to everyone who voted.
