Amanda beats the monkey

Highly-PAID investment gurus watch out -- Amanda Brunker has your number!
The novelist trounced the opposition in the Sunday Independent 'Beat the Monkey' stock-tipping competition, turning her €1,000 investment in shares including Petroceltic, Kenmare Resources, Paddy Power, Tesco and Google, into €1,248. Her prize -- a €1,000 cheque from Paddy Power Bookmakers -- is now bound for the charity of her choice, St Michael's House.
Monkey fans will be disappointed with the simian's distant second spot. Its randomly chosen share portfolio was worth just over €1,120 at the end of the year.
