How many frothy stocks did you have in October 2002 or March 2009? Can you think of any?
I think you are wrong there.
I'm sure I could in 2002
that was not a terrible time except for big caps and tech stocks
mid caps were down just 14% that year. you think there weren't 100 small to mid stocks that were up 50% that year?
here's a list of great stocks in 2002. http://www.forbes.com/2003/01/03/cz_tm_0103sf2.html
including, interestingly, amazon.
hard to read the table, I think it is defective, but some stocks doubled, others up 50%.
