P&A’s 4th quarter contest results

To jog your memory, we ran a fun contest back in mid-September to test our clients’ predictive skills in various areas (the stock market, Husker football, politics, and entertainment).  Twenty-four of you took the challenge and answered the following seven questions (shown here with the answers):

The S&P 500 will close 12/31/14 at?  2001-2100 was the correct answer (actual 2058 or +2.9% from that point)

Husker football team will have how many wins? 9

There will be a Big Ten Football Team in the College Football Playoffs: Yes

Which party will take the majority in the Senate? Republicans

On 12/31/14 the unemployment rate will be: 5.8% or lower

Which movie will be the highest grossing by 12/31? Night at the Museum (its competition was poor)

Which stock will have the best performance into year-end? Target (over Apple, Netflix, Ford, and Tesla)

There were eight entrants who correctly predicted three of the seven answers…not too shabby.  So, we extended the contest for these eight by another month as a tiebreaker.

In the end there were two winners.  Congratulations to Ron and Butch for each winning a $100 gift card to their favorite restaurant and a nice meal on P&A.

Thanks to all for participating. Keep your eyes peeled for the next contest.
