To review last year's performance, we had some big hits like Global Crossing (GLBC), which increase 170%. Our lowest performance came from China Mobile (CHL. That was due to an incorrect computation of shares outstanding. We implore everyone to flag any share outstanding issues so we can correct them in the default analysis.
