Before anyone will get confused, this thread is for the evaluation of predictions made for this year and not for 2013. There will be a similar thread where you can shine up your crystal ball and make your prediction. If you made a prediction about a year ago, don't hesitate to revisit it and you can post it here for everyone to see. Assuming you guessed correctly of course. Before I criticize anyone else, it is nice to see how I did, so let's start with myself. I did have a pretty good crystal ball this year and almost all of my calls were right on the money. So let's see: Evaluation: 1. I was a bit conservative on the market. Although I got the direction right, the market is up 12% right now. This was a rather easy one, since almost every election year is bullish. I was expecting more of a sell off after the election... 2. NFLX went up first from 95 but then as a good little boy tanked and bottomed around $53. I posted then: 3. Of course GRPN went down like the Titanic and overshot my target of $10. Still an excellent call, there was no heat on this one... So I give 2.5 points out of 3 to myself, but wait, there is more! Posted one day before the election: 1. Of course the Electoral College win was a landslide. (don't bitch about it, it is not in Politics) 2. 3 days after the election on Friday, the market bounced back from -4.2%. So 2 more excellent predictions bring up my average to 4.5 out of 5. I got my ball at a Thrift Store, but I shined it really well... How well did you do in 2012???
