Mike,

Thanks for letting me know that this was already posted.
I did make a quick search on the board, but obviously didn't look well enough to see it.

It is such a classic Bogleheads' thing, with a cat picking better than the professionals.

Barbara,

I found the earlier posting by typing “stock picking cat” in the Google Search box located at the upper right portion of the screen. It will display any prior Boglehead postings related to a particular subject.

I would like to see a list that ranks all animals by stock-picking accuracy. We can include "human" in there somewhere.

Thanks, Mike.
I will use that search feature in the future.
I wasn't sure how to do this, before.

So far, we have 2 duplicate threads. The thread is locked to redirect comments to the earliest post: Ordinary Housecat Beats Professional Wealth Managers in Year
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.
