While popular culture often portrays the stock market as filled with extremely wealthy people who have millions to throw around, the reality is that anyone can make money in the stock market. For this weekâ€™s Throwback Thursday, I thought Iâ€™d take a look at what just ONE little share could have done for you over the past 20 years.
This was originally published in April 2009, titled “5 Things to Remember as the Market Turns the Corner.” It has some helpful hints that are true in any market environment. This week for Throwback Thursday we will revisit those hints.
In July 2008, I analyzed the Dow Jones Industrial Average (“DJIA”) to determine its overall valuation. Since then, it has risen to 16,424.85, a rise of 44%. But as I was looking through the archives to select a topic for this Throwback Thursday, I wondered how did the components that were rated well by the ModernGraham valuation model end up working out? Did they beat the DJIA? That’s what we’ll look at today.
