Does Having A Harvard MBA Make Someone A Better Stock Picker?

We're now two weeks into the TradingMarkets/Playboy 2006 Stock Picking Contest and 4 of the 10 Playboy models are beating 11,705 out of the 11,739 equity mutual fund managers in the United States. Yes, that's right, 4 of the Playboy models would be

5. Here's how they would rank if the Playboy models were included in the Morningstar list:

Christine Smith +10.05% 13th out of 11,739 managers Courtney Culkin +9.87% 14th out of 11,739 managers Deanna Brooks +9.54% 18th out of 11,739 managers Amy McCarthy +8.78% 34th out of 11,739 managers
