0 Financial Questions Winners [Special] February 25, 2002

Last week's contest was somewhat of a change of pace: We wanted to see how close you could come to identifying TMF Money Advisor members' most frequently asked questions about topics on the Financial Helpline provided by the The Ayco Company, L.P. (If you're not familiar with the Money Advisor service, which offers professional financial planning tools, seminars, The Ayco AnswerLine®, and more, you can read more about it right here.)

The most asked about topic, it turns out, is asset allocation. It seems our Money Advisor members have plenty of questions about how to divide up their portfolios between stocks, bonds, cash, and other asset classes.

How did you do in the contest? Check your answers against this list:

Top Five Categories

  1. Asset Allocation
  2. Mutual Funds
  3. IRAs/Roth IRAs
  4. Taxes
  5. Stocks

This week's winner is GaryHoward, who scored five out of a possible 10 "credits." Four others also scored five credits, but GaryHoward won the tiebreaker, as decided by our Foolish panel of judges (none of whom are from France). GaryHoward wins a one-year subscription to TMF Money Advisor.

Here's a look at this week's top ten finishers. Remember, ties were decided by a "tiebreaker question," and by random number generation where no question was submitted:

Name            Credits
 1. GaryHoward            5 
 2. BroadwayDan           5 
 3. jack24k               5 
 4. averykc               5 
 5. quasie                5 
 6. shawnr33              4 
 7. momfsa                4 
 8. haley102              4 
 9. Firefilly             4 
10. gregj62               4

jack24k remains on top in the overall race for $500, but his lead is far from secure with shawnr33, BroadwayDan, altaboy, and others breathing down his neck. Looks like this one is going down to the wire!
