         JIM HENNING WINS DOW JONES AND JOHN SLAGLE WINS NASDAQ PREDICTIONS FOR 12-31-14 11.14% 4768
     Jim Henning won the Dow Jones predictions and John Slagle won the NASDAQ predictions for 12-31-2014.  Jim missed
the final Dow Jones average of 17,823 at 12-31-14 by 299 points.  That was 119 points closer then runner up Jim Ohio Slagle.
Dick Hammerstrom and Jim Calif Slagle rounded out the top 4.
      John Slagle edged Jim Calif Slagle by 6 points to win the 12-31-2014 NASDQ predictions.  John missed the final 4736 
average by 26 points.  Jim started the last trading day of the year with a 6 points lead on John and only 9 points from a perfect pick.
Jim held the lead for the frst couple hours, but the average dropped right through his and John's prediction to give John the lead
and the win.  Rounding out the top 4 were Jim Henning and Bob Stanley.
      For the 4th time for DJ and 7th time for NAS in 18 years there were predictions both above and below the final average.  
ANDREW HAZLEWOOD SWEEPS DOW JONES AND NASDAQ PREDICTIONS FOR 12-31-2013
     Andrew Hazlewood won the Dow Jones and NASDAQ predictions for 12-31-2013.  Andrew was under the final Dow Jones average
by 702 points to beat runner-up Blake Vasquez who missed the final average by 954.  On the Nasdaq, Andrew predicted 427 points
less than the final average.  Blake was also 2nd in this prediction with a 644 point miss.  Bob Stanley finished 3rd in the DJ predicts
while Dave Romstad was 3rd in the NAS predicts.
     Andrew also won the Nasdaq picks in 2011 and the DJ picks in 2006.
     Ignoring the 3 point upside miss by Andrew on the 2011 DJ guesstimate, this was the 14th time in 17 years all predictor's  
guesstimates were either below or above the final average.  This is the 7th time in 13 years that everyone was above or below ..
the final NASDAQ average.
JIM HENNING (DJ) AND DICK HAMMERSTROM (NAS) 2012 CHAMP
     In two thrilling races, Jim Henning finished winning the 12-31-12 Dow Jones prediction contest by 8 points over Tom Davis from the internet and Dick Hammerstrom 405
defeated Cap Scholl by 3 points to win the NASDAQ 12-31-12 predictions.         0.1555
     John Slagle held the Dow Jones lead most of the last trading day of the year, but a late last 30 minute surge allowed Jim Henning to move into first, 88 points off the final 13,104 tally.
Tom Davis slipped into 2nd, 8 behind Jim.  This was Jim's 2nd win in 8 tries in the Dow Jones predicts.  He also won the NAS predicts once.
      The NASDAQ started the day at 2961, 19 points above Bob Stanley's prediction.  A surge st the end ran the final average past Al Manzey's 3004 and Bob Scholl's 3012 and just
above Dick Hammerstrom's 3015. Dick missed the final average by 5 points, beating the all time record of 8 by Andrew Hazlewood 2006 and Jim Henning's 2004 mark of 8 points.  Bob
Scholl's 2nd place miss of 8 this year also tied the previous record.  The Dow Jones record is 3 by Andrew Hazlewood last year.
     Dick's previous best in 12 tries was 3rd in NAS predicts in 2002.
             ANDREW HAZLEWOOD 1ST IN DJ AND 2ND IN NASDAQ, AL MANZEY WINS NASDAQ
      Andrew Hazlewood won the Dow Jones 12-31-11 prediction contest by missing the 
final DJ average of 12215 by a record 3 points.  The previous record was an 8 point miss by Jim Henning in 2004 and 
Andrew in 2006.  This is Andrew's 2nd win.  Jerry Slagle was 2nd and Jim 'Ohio' Slagle was 3rd as noted in the right columns.
      Al Manzey defeated Andrew by 15 points on the NASDAQ 12-31-11 prediction contest.  Jerry Slagle finished 3rd.
This is the first time Al has won the NASDAQ predicts but he did win he Dow Jones predicts in 2001 and 2002.
     Ignoring the 3 point upside miss by Andrew on the DJ guesstimate, this was the 13th time in 15 years all predictor's  
guesstimates were either below or above the final average.  This is the 6th time in 11 years that everyone was above or below 
the final NASDAQ average.
EXPERTS DOMINATE DOW JONES AND BOB STANLEY WINS NASDAQ PREDICTS IN 2010

grabbed the lead and held it until the last hour when the Dow sunk 70 points to 10,228 to allow Nelson (10,443) to win.
     Nelson also won the Dow Jones contest in 1998.  His 15 point miss was only the 3rd best in contest history as Jim Henning 
(2004) and Andrew Hazelwood (2006) missed the final average by 8 points.   Four predictors were within 12 points of final DJ average in 2006. 
    This is only the 2nd time in 13 years of Dow Jones predictions, all predictors did not finish either below or above the final DJ average.
     Jim "Ohio" Slagle wrapped up the NASDAQ average sometime ago as he had the highest prediction (1972) and the final average
settled at 2269.   Andrew Coates (1920) captured 2nd in the NASDAQ and Dow Jones predicts.  This is Jim's 1st win, but he has been 2nd once
and 3rd 5 times in either the DJ or NAS contest.  
     This is the 5th time in 9 years that all predictors were either above or below the final NASDAQ average.
BOB SCHOLL CAPTURES 2008 DOW JONES AND NASDAQ PREDICTS
      Bob Scholl won the 2008 Dow Jones and NASDAQ predicts for 2008 despite a record miss by a first place finisher.  
Bob predicted a 3 rise in the Dow Jones and 2% rise in the NASDQ for 2008, the lowest rise by any of our ten predictors
The Dow lost 34% and the NASDAQ 40% for the year!  This is Bob's 2nd consecutive win in the NASDAQ predicts
and he also finished 2nd in 2001.  He has predicted 7 years.  He finished 2nd in 2001 and 2004 in the Dow Jones predicts.
     For the 11th time in 12 years of predictions everyone finished lower or higher then the final Dow Jones average.   This is the 4th
time in 8 years of NASDAQ predictions that everyone was over or  under the final average, but the first time since 2004.  
RANDY LANG 2007 DJ CHAMP, BOB SCHOLL WINS NASDAQ
     Randy Lang won the 2007 Dow Jones predicts by missing the final average by a record low of 28 points.  The previous low
miss was by Phil Hensley who missed the 1997 average by 80 points.  This is the first time in 11 years of the contest that
we didn't have predictions both higher and lower than the final average.  We had 3 predictions lower than the final average. 
Andrew Hazelwood was 2nd with his 79 point miss which was the 2nd closest prediction ever.  Andrew won last year.  Randy has
