Another iPad 2 up for grabs in this month's competition
Fancy your chances of picking the winning Citywire Top Stock for November? (Update: this time with the correct information!)
Update: As some of our hawk-eyed readers spotted, some of the prices in the table were incorrect due to a caffeine deficiency. This has now been rectified, and if anyone entered their forecast on the basis of the wrong numbers and would like to re-enter it, you can do so in the comments box at the bottom of the page. And no, you don't get an iPad for spotting our mistake!

Eligibility: This competition is open to any person resident in the EU who is 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Employees of Citywire or its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising or promotion agencies are not eligible, nor are members of their immediate families.
To enter: Enter by stating in the comment box below the company from Citywire Top Stocks you think will rise the most during the competition period. Entrants must also forecast what they think their chosen company’s share price will be at the end of the competition period (see below). Entry constitutes full and unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions. Citywire reserves the right to disqualify anyone deemed to be in breach of these terms and conditions.
Timing: All entries for this competition must be posted in the box at the bottom of the page by midnight on Tuesday, 8 November. Movement in the share prices of Citywire Top Stocks will be measured between the start level (based on the closing price on 31 October) and the end level (the London Stock Market closing prices on 30 November).
Selection of the winner: The winner will be the person who correctly identifies the Citywire Top Stock that rises the most (or falls the least) between closing price on 31 October and market close of 30 November. In the event that we receive more than one correct entry we will award the prize to the entrant with the predicted share price for their selected company that is forecast closest to the closing level of that stock on 30 November. In the event of a tie on this choice we will put the names in a hat and randomly select one as the winner. If the prize winner cannot be traced after reasonable efforts have been made, that winner will forgo the right to claim the prize and Citywire will arrange for a replacement winning entry to be selected.
