Former Bachmann Fundraiser Wins WSJ Stock-Picking Contest--Two Weeks in a Row
James L. Pollack (no relation), the former finance director for Michele Bachmann's 2012 presidential campaign, won last week's Wall Street Journal stock-picking contest, beating thousands of entires, many of them from Wall Street professionals.
Then Pollack did something no one has done before: he won again.
The first week's challenge had been to predict the closing stock price of Best Buy on Jan. 21. The second week's challenge was to predict the percentage change in housing prices in the November S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price 20-city index.
