THE search for Britain's best investor is over - and it's GP Michael Langton who is quids in.
The 42-year-old from Mirfield made an incredible 155% gain in a month.
Unluckily, it was a fantasy portfolio and not real money.
But Dr Langton does get his hands on a decent amount of cash for winning - £40,000 to be exact.
He is this year's champion in InvestaQuest, the stock-picking competition organised by the London Stock Exchange with Barclays Stockbrokers.
Dr Langton, whose practice is in Ossett, was given an initial portfolio of £50,000 in pretend money.
He turned it into £127,749 with a few good choices. He was nearly £6,000 clear of the runner-up.
Just 20 trades were available to him during the month.
Dr Langton, who calls himself an occasional investor, chose a few renewable energy companies such as Alkane Energy and Biofuels.
He admitted: "I wouldn't normally pick the kind of stocks that I chose for InvestaQuest.
"You have to go for high-risk stocks to stand a chance of winning over such a period of time."
He was presented with his prize at a ceremony in London.
Dr Langton added: "I might spend some of it on solar panels for the house.
"I think that's appropriate since I backed so many renewable energy stocks.
"But on the other hand my wife would like a fitted kitchen."
