You could try to compile the past lists of all these reports (and maybe old HF polls from the past) and compare them to he results these prospects have made since.

And by the way, there are at least some evidences that such an idea isn't as stupid as it's sound. I read some years ago a book called "the wisdom of crowds" on how large numbers of relatively uninformed peoples can make surprising good aggregated judgments in some circumstances.
