Dueling Fools went shopping over the holiday season and we bagged ourselves a Toys "R" Us (NYSE: TOY) Duel. Rick Munarriz (TMF Edible) was our bull. Yi-Hsin Chang (TMF Puck) was our Ebenezer.
Our voting Fools sided with that week's Grinch. However, as online promise and Star Wars hype filled the air so did shares of the toy retailer -- rising 30% over the past six months.
Victory? Rick Munarriz. Congrats!
