Our steeds set out on safari this week hoping to land big game and bigger profits. Silver retains first despite a close call with a rhino that gouged $558 out of his hide. Thirty-year T-bond stalked his dividend skillfully and brought down $83 in profits, good for second. The stock steeds wandered across the fabled elephant burial ground and took their profits in ivory. Blue Chip stayed in third after gathering $242 from the poor pachyderms, while OTC collected $264 worth of future piano keys to remain in fourth. Lipper Mutual realized some tall profits after he dropped a charging giraffe. He move up four places to fifth with a $216 gain. The stock steeds only found small game. EE bonds, Money Market and 90-day CD sold their pelts for $11, $10 and $8, respectively. They each fall one place to sixth, seventh and eighth. In ninth, myopic Gold didn't hit a thing but wasted $168 worth of ammunition when the lion he thought he was aiming at turned out to be a rock. Lipper International, in 10th, bagged $102, his fifth straight gain.
