Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

November is the month when our track

driving and competitive driving events

complete for the year. For 2003, no more

Autocrosses, Time-Trials, Drivers Educations,

or Maverick-Sponsored Club Racing. Looking

at this year from that perspective leaves me

feeling fulfilled. We had four autocross and

time trial driving schools, seven autocrosses,

six time trials, four drivers educations at racetracks, and our

annual club race. We also had a rally school, two rallies, and a

few Concours Events. We hold our annual region dinner,

Founder’s Day in November. This year it’s on November 8th at

the Speedway Club at Texas Motor Speedway. Founder’s Day is

our annual celebration of the founding and tradition of

Maverick Region. We vote and submit ballots for the upcoming

year’s officers and present awards and recognize members for

outstanding service and contribution to the region. We also give

out trophies to the competitors who drove in Autocrosses and

Time Trials during the year and placed. There is a silent auction,

many door prizes you can win, and a great time for socializing

with fellow Mavericks. I hope you’re reading this knowing you’ll

be joining us, and if not, you’ll think about coming to Founder’s

Day next year. While the competitive driving season is over, the

calendar is not empty. There are still many activities and events

going on between now and the end of the year.

...While the competitive driving season is

over, the calendar is not empty...

Now that the weather has changed, on a completely

different note, exterior car-care can be a big part of the

Porsche-nut’s mentality. Some folks do it all by themselves

while others utilize detailing services or automatic or hand car

washes. Of the do-it-yourself crowd I’ve talked to people who

buy more expensive car care products and those who purchase

lower-priced items readily available at auto parts stores and

Wal-Mart, etc. I wonder what is really the ultimate system?

I have chatted with people pretty well versed in everything

from hiding swirl marks to removing Cosmoline from their

undercarriage on a newer Porsche. I’m looking for that

ultimate combination of an easy-to-use, best quality, yet

inexpensive set of products. I have always been careful about

keeping my cars clean and waxed, but never really had a

“system” that included every step- where you park your car,

covers, washing schedules and the like. So I made up my own

“system” that is reasonably cheap and fast to follow. I

developed this system by asking many people about their

methods for keeping their Porsches shiny and wear-free.

I decided that when I traded my first Boxster S in for

a newer one, I would attempt to develop a complete

maintenance “lifestyle” for that car- something I had never

done before. Let me explain: I put 20,000 miles on the first

Boxster in just under 2 years time, and did nothing

exceptional to prevent or eliminate rock nicks, fallout, or

normal abuse. I washed the car whenever it got fairly dirty and

waxed it once every 3 months, tops. Let me give the conclusion

first, by saying that this new Boxster S has 17,000 miles on it

in 17 months and it looks light-years better than the first one.

It has been on the racetrack, autocrossed, and driven on the

highway a lot. So let me share with you what I did:

First, as far as prevention, I use a Porsche nose bra to cover

the front of the car. It is installed about 75 percent of the time.

This bra has eliminated most front paint chips (especially at

Drivers Education events and on the highway). I wash the bra

when I wash the car and then remove it and wash the nose of

the car. I never put the bra on wet, and always put it on a clean

car. Another approach is the 3M clear protective pieces that

can be glued to most surfaces- rocker panels, hoods, bumpers

and fenders. Racecars use this material a lot. The film is almost

invisible and looks great. That solves the problem bras

generate- beautiful car- ugly plastic nose mitten. You can buy

sheets of this protective film or pre-cut specific model designs

for bras, etc. It’s a squeegee and patience job I’m told. It comes

off with a heat gun. In the future I may attempt to install some

of this myself, or have it done by an installer. Second, I

installed small mud-flaps (yes, you read that correctly) from

Tweeks that are not obtrusive and protect the front and rear

rocker panels from debris and dirt kicked up by the tires.

Third, I bought a car cover and use it whenever the car spends

the night outside. Finally, when I go to the track or an

autocross, I use some racers tape strategically placed around

the wheel well arches and rear bumper to keep additional

rocks off the paint. I use mineral spirits or products like

“Goof-Off” to get the goo off after I remove the tape. The car

is nearly chip-free.

I also decided to try a fast detailing method for the

exterior. I buy the gallon sizes of Meguiars car wash and Quick

Detail from www.carcareonline.com, Eagle-1 “Wax-as-U-Dry”

from Wal-Mart, and Costco’s gallon-size Kirkland version of

Simple Green. I use the Meguiars car wash and then the Eagle-1.

That “Wax-as-U-dry” is great. Spray it on a wet car and dry as

usual. The car feels waxed and smooth. I use the Quick Detail

spray a couple of times per month also. I use the Costco green

cleaner on the wheels and inside fender wells. I have yet to

actually wax the car. But I will soon, and will use 3M Imperial

Hand Glaze followed by Meguiars #26 yellow wax.

I also learned about micro-fiber towels for applying and

removing products. These towels leave no little threads, fuzz

etc. on the surface. They can be bought from body shop supply

stores, carcareonline above, and Griots garage, among other

sources. They, however, are not cheap! I’m thinking of buying

the gallon of car wash and the spray detailer from Griots

Garage when my current Meguiars inventory runs out to try

something different. I assume some company manufactures

chemicals for Griots as he is a retailer, but if one of you know

more, please let me know. Till next month then, keep the shiny

side up, the greasy side down, and clean the grease off.

As one of only two dealerships in the country to earn the Premiere Dealer and

Perfect Service Award - and the only one in the Lone Star State - we were, shall

we say, a bit excited. Thanks to our incredible clients, our perfection-driven

staff, and Porsche, for giving us a reason to celebrate today, and every day.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

As I write this, we've had a blast of a cold

front come through. I hope that last week

was the end of our 90 degree temperatures

for a few months, I'm looking forward to

hitting the roads with the windows open and a

cool breeze flowing through the car.

The fall driving season is winding down, I

hope everyone made it out to as many events

as they could. I know I was planning on driving more this year,

but things never work out as planned, do they? This season

appears to be tour season - the Arkansas tour was a hit, Fall Day

Tour is coming up on the 15th followed by the North Texas Hill

Country Scenic Drive on the 22nd. The Fall Day Tour departs

from Mesquite on Hwy 80, while the North Texas Hill Country

Scenic Drive departs "out west" in Fort Worth on University

Drive. I'm intrigued by the Scenic Drive as it's promoted as

being either (your choice) a TSD Rally or an instructed tour.

I'm not much of a rally-ist, so I'm thinking about the

Maverick Minutes

by Mimi Spreen

The Board meeting was held at Park Place

Porsche on Tuesday, October 7 and

called to order at 7:06pm.

Attendees: Cody Sears, Noby Takahashi,

Mike Brodigan, Dennis Chamberlain, Joel

Nannis, Wendy Shoffit, Lanean Hughes, Bob

Knight, Tinker Edwards, Michael Wingfield,

Keith Olcha, Mark Gluck and Mimi Spreen.

Keith - Brought financials (really income statements) and

expenditures which were passed out to everyone. Discussion

took place about publishing these and a decision was made to

have them at the Board Meetings on a quarterly basis.

Wendy - with the Matt hat on. Article deadline is 10/12

which will help in finishing by the 17 or 18 and will be able to

get the Ussery by the 20th of the month. Thanx to Wendy.

Many articles are still needed and "volunteers" will submit to

Matt. This issue is looking a little thin, so articles are needed.

Wendy, as Wendy - Regarding the Slipstream mailings that

have been discussed in length, we will do a trial run to iron out

any problems with labels and if the printing of the labels

works out ok, then we will proceed. Andy Mears is working on

obtaining a bulk mail permit. Motion made to set a limit of

$300.00 for outside Slipstream mailings, seconded and passed.

Also, a grad student at Texas Tech is working on designing a

new web site as part of her thesis. Will have more on that in

the next few months.

Joel - members are good. He has received a few responses

to letters he sent out regarding renewals. Only 1 of 5 wanted

to renew and tried on line with National, who was having a

problem with their on line process. Joel will continue for 1

more month and see if it is worthwhile. He believes that

during and after Parade 04, membership will increase by

about 100.

instructed tour. I don't know exactly where the "North Texas

Hill Country" is, but I'm guessing it's many of the same roads

that I strafe with my motorcycle every other Sunday. I'm really

looking forward to it. RSVP to Ted Glover or Teri Davis for the

appropriate event if you would like to join the fun.

I've heard that our Happy Hours have been a hit lately,

even in poor weather. The Railhead Smokehouse turned out to

be a bit soggy in September. I remember to our first Happy

Hour at the RPM Cafe last spring and was pleasantly surprised

with the turnout and setting. It sounds like the Maverick return

to that location was even more popular in October. The

upcoming Happy Hour is shaping up to be something new and

different... we are going to The Abbey of Richardson. This will

be a new Happy Hour location for us and it looks like we will

be entertained by one of the Happy Hour hosts, Dennis

Chamberlain. Dennis and his friend Stephanie perform at

various local clubs, but this is a special presentation just for our

club. I can't wait!

Bob - will have more expenditures that weren't on the list

that Keith passed out, that will effect the bottom line. Updated

budgets for Parade 04 needed from committee chair.

Mike Brodigan - 5 new prospects for advertisers. Will

check with Matt to see how much room we have for new

advertisers. Would like to ask advertisers to write a short

statement that they would like readers to know about them, ie:

new concepts, new products. Mike will put together a letter

notifying advertisers of this new idea. He would also like to put

together a Parade edition to be included in the June Slipstream

or be a stand alone issue that has Ft. Worth restaurants and

other places where Parade attendees can go or visit while in Ft.

Worth. Mike is asking for help in putting that together.

Suggested that he talk to Jan and Fran about ideas.

Cody - tech at the track went well. Had a good turnout.

There was a pretty large oil spill on the track that made it

necessary to change the course to avoid the spill. Pennington's

2004 dates have been firmed up, but still trying to firm up

dates at Mineral Wells.

Dennis - The October 16th Happy Hour is at RPM, which

used to be Cafe Vienna. BYOB and cheap food. Lots of

parking and can use the outdoor patio if weather is nice. The

November 20th HH is at Abbey in Richardson with musical

entertainment.

Lanean - Scheduling committee met and 2004 dates are

set. Founder's Day is right around the corner and would like

to get as many people to attend as possible. The Residence Inn

near TMS is offering a $69.00 per night rate for the night of

October 25, the Halloween party, which puts you right there

for the Charity Autocross the next day and also for Founder's

Day, Nov. 8.

Motion made to adjourn the meeting at 8:15, seconded

and approved.

Happy Hour at Railhead Smokehouse

by Dennis Chamberlain

Twenty-eight hearty Mavericks

braved the storms and outrageous

traffic to attend the

happy hour at the Railhead

Smokehouse in Colleyville on

September 11. I didn’t see any

Cayennes, but on this particular

evening I wish I’d owned one.

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Most of us were the hardcore

Tinker Edwards, and Mark Gluck constituents, but we also had first

time attendee Mitch Ballard from

Coppell. It is interesting to note that Mitch has been a Maverick

member since 2001, but this was his first time he’d attended one

of our events. He has previously been a member of the New

Orleans Region. He acquired his ’86 911 in 1996, and has spent

the last couple of years working on it. Now that it’s all fixed up,

he said he isn’t inclined to take it to the track. But no problem –

he just bought a 944 turbo for that purpose.

The Railhead is well-suited for our happy hours. The serving

line works well for us, with no waiters, and the food and beverage

prices can’t be beat.

We’ll have some musical entertainment

that evening (see ad on

Page 2). The Abbey has an extensive

menu, and it’s very reasonably

priced.

After the October Happy Hour

at RPM Café in Irving, we’ll have

our first happy hour ever in

Richardson on November 20. The

location will be at the Richardson

Abbey (at Coit and Campbell).

Driver Education at MotorSport Ranch

By Chris Irby

Irecently attended the last DE of 2003 for the Maverick Region,

at MotorSport Ranch sponsored by Boardwalk Porsche. I have

attended events put on by other organizations before, but this

was my first time to drive with the Porsche Club. I felt like this event

was run much better than those held by the other organizations.

Our run groups always went out on time and in an orderly manner,

the catered barbecue lunch was great, and I always felt safe while I

was on the track during the run sessions. This event was the most

fun I have ever had at any of the track events that I attended.

My instructor, Mike Brodigan, was a great teacher and a really

big help to me on the track. He was able to show me a new line

that I had never run before. This new line felt much more comfortable

and much faster than the line that I had previously

learned. I really appreciate all of the help he was able to provide

for me.

On Saturday, Boardwalk Porsche provided cheeseburgers,

hot dogs, and all the fixings after the track had cleared in the

evening. The cookout was a great idea and also a great way to finish

a long day at the racetrack. Thank you: Larry Irby, Cindy Irby,

Chris Alford, Archie VanScoonhoven, and Laura VanScoonhoven

for all of your time and efforts to provide a great dinner for all of

us at the track.

MSR’s clubhouse is a cool place to watch the action from

I am really excited that the Maverick Region was able to

expand their schedule of track events for next year. After my

wonderful experience with this last event, I can’t wait to get back

out to the track again with the Maverick Region next year.

...I can’t wait to get back out on the track

again with Maverick Region...

Cliff Blackshear was also at the event, on behalf of Boardwalk

Porsche, to provide mechanical services to participants when

needed. Cliff always seemed to be busy looking into several of the

different technical problems that arose throughout the weekend.

I’m sure there are several participants who greatly appreciate all

of the efforts and services put forth by Cliff throughout the weekend.

Since Hans Hoffmann, Cliff Blackshear, and myself were at

the event as members of Boardwalk Auto Group, there were several

people, throughout the weekend, who showed us their appreciation

for our support. It felt good to know that everyone really

appreciated all of Boardwalk Porsche’s efforts to help the

Maverick Region run an excellent event to finish up for 2003.

Leadfoot Reunion

By Noby Takahashi

Ahhh, late September. When the north Texas weather starts to

become bearable and fall is right around the corner. Oh,

that’s right; I keep on forgetting that Texas doesn’t have four

seasons. In any case, it’s the time of year where the competitive

driving season for Maverick Region nears an end and we try to lure

the old (in experience, not age) leadfoots back out to Mineral Wells.

The Leadfoot Reunion for 2003 consisted of Time Trial #5 on

Saturday utilizing Course 2 and a huge course designed by Rocky

Johnson on Sunday for Autocross #6.

I loaded up my Boxster S on the new open trailer and towed

out to Mineral Wells on Friday evening. Since I left Dallas a little

late, I missed the gang having dinner at Baris. I also missed hitting

cement poles sticking out of the ground, for which my trailer

fender (and my bank account) was very grateful. After a good

night’s sleep at the Executive Palace and a greasy #1 breakfast at

Braum’s, I headed out Mineral Ring to find out that a large group

of people had shown up before 7AM. On-site tech and Intro to

Time Trial 101 overview both seemed to work out just fine and

the Driver’s Meeting commenced on time at 9AM.

I found out that my only competition in Class 7 was going to

be Tom Lang in his Boxster S. Well, it wasn’t going to be a day to

get a very high Driver’s Index. Course 2 is the one with a 90°

right-hander in the back left corner and the long infield. Quite

gravelly as usual and that darn pothole seems to be getting larger

for the 90° right-hander. I just didn’t drive very aggressively and

Walking the autocross course on Sunday morning was interesting,

it took nearly 30 minutes to walk it once. This event also

gave Charlie an opportunity to roll out some of the equipment

being prepared for Parade ’04. The event was delayed slightly in

the morning, due to an oil leak on Rick Gonzales’ good looking

914-6. We even had to modify the course to avoid the slick spots.

After all was said and done, Mark Steele looked really smooth in

his 993 and took TToD honors. Since I usually don’t excel at

autocrosses, there isn’t much to talk about my driving on Sunday.

...Mineral Wells wasn’t miserable

for a change...

Many thanks to everyone that showed up to make this a great

weekend and Mineral Wells wasn’t miserable for a change. We

were all blessed with excellent weather for the entire weekend.

Special thanks to Richard Diller, Tom Lang and the Gohlke’s for

showing up on Saturday, Richard for watching all of our cars and

trailers on Saturday night, and Richard (once again), Ed Mayo,

Fran Ussery and our illustrious Prez Keith Olcha showing up on

his birthday (what was it, 50th?) for the autocross.

PS Rick Randall owes me 5 gallons of 87 octane gas, I was

planning on putting that in Machala’s Boxster…

my time lagged behind Rocky and Chuck. Currently, I am blaming

my slower times on the 18” Kinesis wheels I bought from

Rocky. Like my golf game, it has to be the equipment, not the

operator. The big highlight of Saturday was watching Cody Sears

borrow the Gohlke’s 914 and rip out a TToD, beating out an

excellent time by Richard Diller. Before I forget, there was a cone

down on every one of my afternoon hot laps, and Cody was in

front of me. Did anyone call in those cones on Car Number ‘66’?

We had a large turnout for the dinner at Baris. I can’t repeat

what Chuck had to say about my driving in this publication, but

I agreed wholeheartedly (or should I have hit him over the head

with my anchovy pizza?). Rocky rode with me during Fun Runs

and had very similar comments; I was losing a lot of time in the

hairpin turn. Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback.

ALMS Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca

by Bill and Marilyn Stafford

The signs were all there. Crowds, noise, pits full of unimaginably

expensive equipment and the wafting smell of Track

Burgers cooking over an open fire – but wait! Where is the

fog and cold? Not here! Thus began the first of the three days of the

American LeMans Race Series at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca

with absolutely perfect weather.

The weekend began on Friday with a ceremony, cake and

dedication of the “Rahal Straight”. Racing legend Bobby Rahal

was on hand while being honored by the naming of the back

straight (from the exit of Turn 6 up the hill and through the Turn

7 kink to the entrance of the Corkscrew) as the “Rahal Straight”.

The “Rahal Straight” joins the Andretti Hairpin – Turn 2 and the

Rainey Curve – Turn 9, as three named sections of the track (the

Corkscrew being named for a particular movement – I think).

Saturday was a copy of Friday, weather wise, and Steve Saleen

made the most of it by trotting out his new limited series road

car, the Saleen S7. It was debuted at the Monterey Historics' a

couple of weeks earlier where an MSRP of $395,000 is considered

chump change. Nice mid-engined 7 liter, 550 hp, 2750-pound

rocket with guillotine doors that goes 150 mph sitting still.

The ALMS race was a real seat grabber.

As is usual at this track, a very crowded first turn disrupted

many teams’ strategies as cold tires and cold brakes coupled with

an excess of adrenaline to produce multiple car contacts. In the P

900 class Frank Beila in the No.1 Audi took control of the race

from the start, although Johnny Herbert (Champion Audi #38)

chased him initially, he eventually fell back with boost problems

caused by a circuit breaker. Didn’t Bosch buy Lucas? Anyway,

Herbert fiddled around with the spark box and reset the breaker.

Not long after, in his haste to catch up to the leaders, he trashed

the car’s gearbox. The Champion crew changed the gearbox in

9 minutes. J.J. Lehto then set off on a truly remarkable drive

and brought the 38 car back to a third place finish in class.

Frank Biela and Marco Werner cruised to a victory with the 1 car

Joest Racing/Infineon Audi R. The victory clinched the

American LeMans Series P900 Manufacturers Championship for

Audi – again.

In the P 675 class James Weaver and Butch Leitzinger earned

honors despite James being helped off the course by slower

traffic at the end of the first hour. “One of the GT Porsches

Photo by Bill Stafford

moved me up into the marbles and I slid off the track” explained

Weaver. “I ended up in the tire wall, but didn’t damage the car

and was able to reverse, but it cost us 44 seconds.” It did not

sound this coherent when he said it, however.

The Guard seems to be on the verge of changing for next

year’s GTS class, which has recently been dominated by the

Factory Corvettes. ACEMCO Motorsports announced this weekend

that they would be campaigning a new Saleen S7R in the

entire 2004 American LeMans Series. Bobby Rahal also expressed

interest in campaigning a Ferrari next year in GTS.

The two Prodrive Ferrari 550 Maranellos originally swept the

GTS honors, even lapping the rival Corvette, but the winning car

of Tomas Enge was excluded from the results following the postrace

inspection for failing the “stall test”. This is a procedure in

which the engine’s primary air intake is blocked off and the car is

...it’s not too late to become a legend and have a

piece of real estate named after you...

supposed to stall to verify that only air passing through the

regulatory air restrictor is getting to the engine. It did not. The

other Ferrari passed the test and was awarded the win, with the

two Corvettes elevated to 2nd and 3rd. Anyway, it looks as if the

GTS class may have some welcome and needed competition for

the fans.

Sascha Maassen and Lucas Luhr ruled the GT category once

again and claimed the GT class drivers’ championship for the 2nd

straight year. Sascha Maassen (#23- GT Porsche) took the lead

early in the race passing teammate Timo Bernhard (#24 – GT

Porsche). “It was a Sunday afternoon cruise for me,” grinned

Lucas Luhr because Sascha had done all the work. The only

problem they had was their radio went out so they had to communicate

using the pit board. The #24 Alex Job Porsche 911 GT3

RS was plagued with problems throughout the day. They had to

change both the battery and the alternator and eventually were

forced to end the day early. Placing second in GT was the

Risi Competition GT Ferrari 360 Modena driven by Ralf

Kelleners and Anthony Lazzaro. The White Lightning/Petersen

Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 RS driven by Johnny Mowlem, Nic

Jonsson and Craig Stanton placed third.

The SPEED GT and Grand Touring races were also held

during the weekend. The SPEED World Challenge

Championships feature a weight-equalization system, REWARDS

(Rewarding of Equalizing Weight Assigned to Reduce Drive

Sensitivity) is based on each competitors finishing position in

each race (basic VooDoo). It is accomplished by adding or

removing ballast weight from the cars. The goal is to provide

close on-track competition between diverse varieties of cars. The

REWARDS weight is displayed on the windshield of each car

(probably to impair visibility). This appears to have limited Bill

Auberlen and the other BMW team cars from running away and

hiding from the rest of the class as they did at Infineon Raceway.

Just don’t ask what they do if they have a driver change.

30 Michael Galati #1 Audi RS 6

30 Randy Pobst #2 Audi RS 6

20 Paul Mumford #23 Dodge Viper

Randy Pobst and Michael Galati driving Audi RS 6s swept

the front row. Randy described the car like this: “The Audi RS 6

has always qualified well. The Quattro advantage that this car has

drives all four wheels and has a twin turbo V8, which is pretty

much out of the street car. It’s one of the only (unmodified)

street engines running in this series.” Randy also compared the

Audi to the Porsche 911, which he had raced for 5 years. He

stated that the Porsche has power and speed that are addictive,

but the Audi has the torque. This is the first year they are running

the A6 and it is improving with every race. Unfortunately, the

Audis encountered several problems during the race and could

not keep pace with the Viper and the BMWs.

In SCCA SPEED Touring Car class, Bill Auberlen’s

BMW 325i was accessed 200 pounds compared to his closest

competitor’s 65 pounds. The 200 pounds did not prevent Bill

from winning the race.

The Pit Rat Investigates the Factory Sponsored vs. Privateer

Status: Recently, ALMS announced that Alex Job Racing was

losing their privateer status in the ALMS GT class. This means

that the #23 and #24 Porsches are not eligible for each event

purse. What does this mean to Alex Job Racing and should ALMS

treat them any differently than the Champion Audi Team, the

Joest Team, Panoz Team, or the Corvette Team? All of these teams

including the Alex Job Team have factory drivers. The Alex Job

team does receive developmental parts from Porsche that still

Photo by Bill Stafford

need to be tested for quality and reliability. This is both good

and bad. (They have had a head crack after one race.) They are

field-testing the parts, similar to a beta software release. It does

save the Job team from having to develop their own racing parts.

Job does not receive any direct sponsorship from Porsche. If you

look in the Alex Job pit, there are no signs or decals that say

“Porsche North America”, but you will see “Audi North America”

in the Champion and Audi pits and “Corvette/General Motors”

in the Corvette pit. These teams and the Panoz team receive

factory parts, but they also receive the event purse. Financially

this means the Alex Job will have to raise an additional $200,000

each year from sponsors. Ain’t politics grand?

Finally - It’s not too late to become a legend and have a piece

of real estate named after you. First you have to be successful.

This can be achieved by gaining success. So work hard and

save some.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Value

Trust's inception date is 4/16/82. The investment return and principal

value of the fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares,

when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Calculations assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains

distributions. Performance would have been lower if fees had not

been waived in various periods. The S&P 500 index is based on

common stock prices, including reinvestment of dividends and

capital gains distributions, and is generally considered representative

of the U.S. stock market. Source: Lipper Inc.
