Equities 2010: Which stocks will rock?
The outlook for equity markets in 2010 is as muddled as ever after a year that only can be described as enigmatic. Equities had one of the best runs ever off of the March 2009 low, but it sure didn’t feel bullish or that we were in the midst of a recovery. Once there were actual signs of recovery, the market corrected.
Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 rose during November and December 2009 and declined in January, with the Dow off nearly 3%. But just because it’s difficult to predict exactly where equities are headed this year doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities in this market.
