Alright, returns of 400% between the bottom in 2003 and now were not only common for many stocks, but conservative. Many small, medium and large cap shares have soared 600% to 800%. Just look at Apple, Phelps-Dodge, Peabody Energy, Marathon, Toyota, AMD, Boeing, or thousands of other stocks. Obviously, in retrospect, the spring of 2003, when people were scared to death of the markets, was an ideal entry point for most speculators and investors. So, what are the odds of ever seeing this kind of 40 month performance stretch again in our lifetimes?
