Some great charts and tables looking at the 2007 returns of various sectors, indices and stocks in today’s WSJ.
The bottom line for 2007: A money market account would have slightly edged out the S&P500, while a typical (junk-free) Bond portfolio would have handily trounced the equity benchmark index. You did best with the Nasdaq, 2nd best with the Dow, worst with the Russell 2000 . . .
