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.
