How's your bracket look after the wild first four days of the NCAA men's basketball tournament?
Sixteenth-seeded University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) beat No. 1 Virginia easily, while underdog Loyola Chicago won two games on last-second shots. Ramble on.
Meanwhile, Blue bloods North Carolina and Michigan State are out, while Xavier and Cincinnati are gone as well. (Sorry, Queen City.)
No wonder they call it "March Madness"! In honor of the most exciting three weeks in sports, Real Money is proud to present its own "Sweet 16" -- 16 great stock picks and trades from our columnists.
The criteria we selected are our columnists' favorite stocks for whatever holding period they like, and with the proviso that writers couldn't choose the same name they selected for our Top 2018 Picks special reports.
We'll roll out four columnists' selections per day between now and Thursday.
Coming up later today, we will wrap up our Sweet 16 selections with four more great picks from the "Midwest Region" from Tim Collins, Skip Raschke, Jim Collins and Bret Jensen!
