NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Holy crap! Is summer over already? It seems like only yesterday when we were hanging out at a Memorial Day BBQ, plotting to write the next great American novel and counting the hot, hazy days until Michael Dell bought back his own company.
Well, Labor Day is now upon us and neither Mike nor us has made much headway toward our goals. Sad to say, that summer wind has blown right by us both.
Still, the summer of 2013 wasn't a total waste. We may not have penned the next Huckleberry Finn -- that will have to wait till next summer -- but we did have a whole lot of fun finding Wall Street's dumbest things these past three months.
So before we officially close the books on the season and focus on the fall, here's a quick look back at the 5 Dumbest Things on Wall Street This Summer.We'll see you in September. (You too Mike, especially if Carl Icahn has his way!)
