The first four celebs remain the same in Trading With The Stars--and all actors. Actor Jonathan Tucker maintains his vice grip on first place with gains in Starwood Hotels and Washington Grp. Actor James Cromwell holds onto second place, as fellow actors Stephen Collins remains in 3rd and Ernie Hudson in 4th. Meanwhile--another actor--Willie Garson muscles his way from 9th to 5th on an all-in trade on ACME Packet up 4.05% on Wednesday. Wow--either actors are great stock pickers are they're ALL getting great advice. That leaves a financial guru, comedienne, champion poker player, political guru and Hall of Famer--in that order.
Wow--actor Ernie Hudson pulled out all the stops (thus his picture gets listed) and jumped from 4th into 2nd place in Trading With The Stars. This continues his momentous climb as he had previously moved from 8th to 4th. So Ernie is definitely on a roll or donut -or just plain getting some great advice. Ernie knocks fellow actor Stephen Collins into 4th place behind James Cromwell, while Jonathan Tucker keeps a hold on 1st place. And Johnny Bench might take a few lessons from Ernie. The Hall of Fame catcher keeps 10th place very warm!
