We've come to the end of our Motley Fool Stock Madness tournament, which pitted 16 editor-selected companies in a fierce investing bracket.

I'll help you figure out the winner by sharing three terrible puns I could have used:

  • The Tide rolls on.
  • This company is Head & Shoulders above the rest.
  • The victory wasn't Nice 'n Easy, but it's no Secret that the winning stock displayed some Zest.

Consumer products giant Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) played the role of Duke, eking out a 54% to 46% victory over unexpected finalist Petrobras (NYSE: PBR) -- the Exxon of Brazil.

Beyond the final, though, our tournament offered several other highlights.

Biggest first-round surprise: The size of Boeing's (NYSE: BA) loss to Petrobras. A full three-quarters of the votes went to the upstart from Brazil.

The Group of Death: The "High-Tech" group was a killer, with Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO), and Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) all duking it out. We figure the difficulty of selecting the survivor of this group is the single reason why Vegas refused to post odds on this tournament.

Closest match-up: Procter & Gamble's semifinal victory over Apple. After surviving the Group of Death, Apple lost by just six votes, with more than 1,000 investors weighing in. Despite the winner being declared, stragglers have continued to weigh in. As of this writing, the margin is down to just one vote!
