Thanks for your response!

10 Playboy models picked 5 stocks each. The contest ran for the full 2006 calendar year.
The average return for all 10 models was 8.6%. Half the models had gains and half had
losses. The biggest loser was Amy McCarthy -- sister of MTV's Jenny McCarthy -- down 37%.

At the end of 2006, should Deanna Brooks (up 43%) or Amy McCarthy (down 37%) change their
investing strategy or decision-making for 2007 based on the previous year's comparison to
the Index? Should Deanna stick with stock picking and Amy become an index investor? What
benefit is there to compare to the index for either of them? What are the pitfalls?

I don't pretend to have the answers. I'm interested in hearing your opinion.
