Coping with This Bear Market

Some tips from Morningstar on dealing with a down market.

No doubt about it: This market is brutal. Three quarters of the stocks and funds we cover are down this year. (It's hard to believe, but not too long ago earnest politicians argued that our Social Security funds should be invested in the stock market.) Now, the big questions weighing on many investors' minds are, "Which losers do I dump, and which do I hold onto?"
