The rally in U.S. equity markets over the past five-plus years has not only led to a tripling of the value of the S&P 500 TR Index--from an intraday trading low of 673.88 on March 9, 2009, to an all-time trading high of 2,005.04 on Aug. 26, 2014--but has seen the market advance with relatively few corrections (of more than 5%), the last one taking place during the back half of 2012. While this has been good for investors overall, it has limited the options for our Ultimate Stock-Pickers, many of whom are now bereft of ideas in which to put new money to work.
