  • Fuzzy Mathematician and I have a friendly wager on the relative performance of CERN and the Dow Industrial Average from April 30, 2014 to April 30, 2015. We are 1/2 of the way through our 12 month period (picked non-arbitrarily; quarterly reports are ubiquitous), so let us see where we stand as of October 31st, 2014.

    DOW 30 Industrials: UP 4.88%
    CERN: UP 23.47%

    Difference: CERN is up 18.59% over the DOW for the 6 months since April 30th.

    Of course, it's not over until the fat lady sings, but I am liking my prospects for winning this bet. In my analysis of fuzzymathematician's predictions of the past, I don't think I have very much to worry about. Using his sentiment on CERN's future performance as a contrarian play would have reaped great returns over the past several years.

    He has been noticeably quiet the past few months. Perhaps that is just another payoff of this bet.
