Janus Rising in 2006: Fool by Numbers

On Thursday, Janus Capital Group (NYSE: JNS  ) released earnings for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2006.

  • Investors seem to be regaining faith in Janus. Long-term inflows equaled $2.3 billion during 2006.
  • Still, two of the three Wall Street analysts we're tracking in Motley Fool CAPS believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500. A lighter-than-expected sales report won't help, even if per-share earnings beat estimates.
