2 Barrys in 3 Way Tie

Our earlier post, From Worst to First Second: Business Week Forecast 2007 may have been a bit premature:  According to the fine number crunchers at Bespoke Group, as of today, we were in a 3 way tie for first place, based on S&P500 data:

"Below we highlight the strategists who made the closest year-end S&P 500
calls as of 12/21.  Two Barry’s (Barry Hyman and Barry Ritholtz) are both within
a mere 7 bps of the actual price level of the S&P 500.  (And we have to give
props to Barry Ritholtz for making
the best individual stock call in the survey with MOS – up over 300%.) 

Of course, Business Week also looks at the Dow, 10 Year yield, Nasdaq, and Russell2000.
