The San Francisco Chronicle came up with an amusing
way of evaluating how successful investment
advisers are at picking stocks. They asked eight analysts
to pick five stocks at the beginning of the year
and then compared the performance of their stock
picks to those chosen by Jolyn, an orangutan living at
Marine World/Africa USA in Vallejo, California.
Consistent with the results found in the
“Investment Dartboard” feature of the Wall Street
Journal, Jolyn beat the investment advisers as often
as they beat her. Given this result, you might be
just as well off hiring an orangutan as your investment
adviser as you would hiring a human being!

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Thanks for sharing this information. Even I am in favour of taking professional help when it comes to money matters. My dad has always been around telling me about terms like equity and Capital gain Bonds. These are going to be helpful in future and so I am considering taking professional advice.
