Halloween 2001

Each year we report on the results of our Halloween Tricks and Treats from the previous year. We know that like us, you'd like to see how our picks did. Keep in mind, though, that these are rather short-term results. Good, solid companies may have simply had a bad year, and over time it may or may not turn out to be a blip. Conversely, some companies may end up in retrospect not having been such clever choices even though they had a good year. So while it's fun to keep score, keep in mind that except for shorts, we take the long view, and hope you do too.

Here's how our 2000 Tricks and Treats fared:
