    This is an update to the 2011 stock pick portfolios for SmartMoney, Money, Fortune, Kiplinger and Barrons publications and also brokers, J P Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. 
    The stock pickers have held roughly their same standings since our last report with the exception of Kiplinger, which has moved up from sixth to second place.  Goldman Sachs easily maintains first place and Fortune still holds last place. 
    As of September 2, we now only have one of the eight stock pickers beating both the S&P and the Nasdaq. Fortune and J.P.Morgan’s losses are now approximately three times the market indexes.
