Matt Stichnoth at notes the recent performance of Barron’s “Big Money Poll” has been quite poor. Since the Fall of 2000 the BMP’s pans have outperformed the picks by some 64%! Stichnoth notes that one would have been better off shorting the picks and buying the pans. Then again in the same article 86% of respondents claim to be outperforming the S&P 500 this year. Clearly not with the picks that they are providing Barron’s, however.
