The Tooth Fairy

Sounds like the topic of an Aesop's Fable, huh? 

However, the latest version of the Original Tooth Fairy Poll released today shows there is a direct correlation between how much money kids find under their pillow when they loose a tooth and the performance of the stock market. Seriously.

The report says the money given to kids has matched the results of the S&P 500 in 12 of the past 13 years. For instance, over the past year the average cash payout, $4.66, was up 19.18% over the previous year. The S&P 500 rose 19.61% in the same period. 

Overall, the tooth fairy doled out $290.6 million in the past twelve months.
