It's the first week of the first round of the year for the shares race and already Angie Ellis of 80 20 Investments occupies top spot - a position she occupied for most of last year.
Ellis' pick of SportsHero has grown her $10,000 to $12,000 to help take her total portfolio value to $104,016.
SportsHero is a real-time fantasy sports app that allows users to make predictions on games using virtual currency and win prizes. Users can make money by getting others using SportsHero to subscribe to their tips for a small fee.
Hina Chowdhary of Kalkine, the winner of last year's Year-Long Race, is in second spot with a total portfolio value of $103,889. OneVue Holdings is her best pick so far with her $10,000 worth $11,409.
OneVue is part of the "platform" market; back-office technology that allows financial advisers and accountants to transact and administer investments.
In the case of OneVue, that's mostly superannuation.
The S&P/ASX 200 index finished the week 40 points higher at 6050 points which, for the shares race, is the Thursday close. The mining sector was the best performer during the week largely because of higher commodity prices.
Four of the eight tipsters have picked Zip Co - so that one will be interesting to watch. Zip Co operates the zipPay and zipMoney "buy now, pay later" apps.
Money welcomes two new players - BusinessDay reporters Clancy Yeates and Cole Latimer.
