We had good October, despite Europe crisis.
Typically it leads to 6% rally in 3 months.
While early November was rocky, from mid-November until the end of the year is usually one of the best times to own stocks.
For example, in the 17 years from 1990 to 2006, the overall market as measured by the S&P 500 Index ($INX) has gained 5.9% on average. Equally impressive, the market scored gains in 13 of those years. It broke even (less than a 1% change) twice and dropped twice. Its biggest loss was 3.9%
My picks for Year-End Rally are: Dell, see http://stockpicks247.blogspot.com/2011/10/weekly-prediction-from-october-23-dell.html: BAC, GMR.
