For those of you who sleep secure in the knowledge that Wall St. investors are making the best decisions on where your hard-earned capital goes, you might be interested to know that, in terms of stock performance over the last year, the 22nd-highest-performing stock analyst was - a six year old female chimp by the name of Raven; who selected stocks by throwing darts at the company names; her chosen stocks delivered a 213% gain on the year; outperforming the feeble efforts of over 6,000 human stockbrokers.

And who said it wasn't all just a lottery?

(And yes, she was paid peanuts.)
