2013's Top 10 Dumbest Things on Wall Street

It's been one heckuva year for the bulls, hasn't it Dumbest fans? Boy, did they lead a market stampede in 2013, Fed-tapering talk be damned.

Simply because the indices shot higher, however, does not mean corporate America was devoid of dumb things this past year. In fact, it was quite the contrary. Our friends on Wall Street gave us an abundance of asinine incidents from which to choose, making it harder than ever for us to select a mere 10 for our annual year-end list.

Still, we have a job to do, so here are our selections for the 10 biggest flubs of 2013. If you disagree with our ranking, or feel we omitted a doozy, feel free to shoot us an email. Like we said, there was more than enough stupidity to go around this year, far more than even experts like us could possibly recognize.

And before we turn the last page in our calendar, we'd like to wish all of our readers a happy and healthy 2014. We hope to see you all in the New Year, but for your own sake, not on one of our dumbest lists.
