Naughty and Nice in 2006

So I was watching Elf for, like, the 10th time with my daughter the other day, and Santa's book of who's been naughty and who's been nice made its appearance. Even as an adult, "the book" still sends a chill down my spine.

Then it hit me: Why not recap the "naughties and niceties" of 2006? So I gathered up our Foolish contributors and asked them to write articles about what they liked and disliked in business this year.

To encourage creativity, I didn't want to limit them. So we opened the discussion up to companies, people, products, events, and anything else that related to business. You'll find out which list companies like Whole Foods (Nasdaq: WFMI  ) , IMAX (Nasdaq: IMAX  ) , Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA  ) , Flamel (Nasdaq: FLML  ) , Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) , Gateway (NYSE: GTW  ) , and NVE (Nasdaq: NVEC  ) made. And I am proud to say that the writers came up with lots of other interesting ideas, too.

So who's getting a T.M.X. Elmo doll and who's getting a lump of coal? Find out below from our Foolish naughty and nice lists for 2006.



Whole Foods and Disney are Motley Fool Stock Advisor selections. IMAX is a Rule Breakers recommendation. Flamel is a Hidden Gems pick. Any of our newsletters would make a perfectly delightful holiday present.

Retail editor and Inside Value team member David Meier is ranked 503 out of 17,548 in Motley Fool CAPS and does not own shares in any of the companies mentioned. You can view his TMF profile here. The Fool takes its disclosure policy very seriously.
