Analyzing Ashok Kumar

I’ve said that that analyst Ashok Kumar frequently comes up with scoops that turn out to be anywhere from not exactly correct to flat-out wrong. My colleague Ed Oswald made the same point earlier this week when Kumar said a 7-inch iPad is on its way. So in the interest of fairness, here’s a post defending Kumar by TheStreet.com’s Scott Moritz–a frequent author of stories based on scuttlebutt from the analyst.

Moritz says he’s listing Kumar’s five top tech calls–although by my count, two of them involve predictions that yet to pan out.

Is the White iPhone Leaky?

I’m instinctively skeptical of news reported by TheStreet.com’s Scott Moritz.
