Dueling Fools

February 7, 2001

Remember when Lucent (NYSE: LU) was AT&T's (NYSE: T) spun-off golden child? That seems so far away now. We took a look at the company last summer, just as it was becoming undone.

Paul Commins (TMF Buster) was our Bull. Chris Rugaber (TMF RFK) was our Bear. Our Voting Fools sided with Paul. Well, the bad times continued. Six months later, the stock had plunged by 58%.

Victory? Chris. Congrats!
