STOCKHOLM (AP) - A newspaper gave five stock analysts and a chimpanzee

10,000 kronor (U.S. $1,250) each to make as much money as they could on the stock

market. The chimp won.

After one month, the chimpanzee, Ola, saw his stocks rise by 1,542 kronor (U.S. $190),

the newspaper Expressen reported. Runner-up was Mats Jonnerhag, a market expert and

publisher of the newsletter Borsinsikt (Bourse Insight). His stocks rose by 1,050

kronor (U.S. $130) from Aug. 3 to Sept. 3.

While the stock experts carefully considered their portfolios, Ola made his choice

by throwing darts at names of companies listed on the Stockholm Bourse.
