Anyone who buys stocks based on articles like this shouldn't be in the market.

Best Buy stock was going in the Crapper, they have increased their over all revenue by closing stores and laying off thousands,

which led to their CEOs getting FAT bonuses. I guess that's the way to raise your stock

Isn't the only real "super" in the S&P... Ben Bernanke? None of the companies listed actually amount to much of anything, but all of them slumped previously so that Ben could save them with fake money our great great great great great great great grandchildren will still be paying back. I'd rather see you list all the businesses with barely any stock value that are hiring, thriving and not Bernanke-reliant.

 

America may never outrun what this garbage-can of a government has done by letting Bernanke print us into oblivion.

So, you said in another article this week that Netflix is cirling the drain, but it's the best stock of the year?  You need to deicde if they're successful or not and stick with it!

So yesterday, according to MSN Money, Netflix is "circling the drain". Now today, it is the top performing stock! What a difference 24 hours makes.....

I only buy stocks that pay a nice dividend.

The reason some of these have done so well, in the last 6 months or so. Is that they were crap stocks with serious management and bad business models. You want to invest in hirisk companys liek best buys, go ahead. Hi risk hi reward.

I would rather invest in superior business models with sound management.

Like Costco, FCX or heck GOOGLE?

I'm surprised that J.C. Penny isn't on here (I jest).  I mean if you can put Netflix and Best Buy, then why not Sears and Penny's?

Couldn't help but smile, the customer going into the Best Buy store has a large Princess Cruise Line bag. LOL LOL

whoever design your page should be fired! Flipping through 12 pages just to see top 10??? Do you get paid by click on what? Or maybe each click count as a visit? "Management Meeting: Site visits has increase 12 fold! I need my bonus check"

Too bad most of these companies were at 52 weeks lows entering into 2013...Those who had invested in these companies for a year or more like most investors would just now be getting back to even or a little profit. If you were one of those who invested early in 2013 and called the turn around, kudos to you. A lot of these companies were in financial trouble and headed towards bankruptcy or huge changes that would alter them...these companies happened to get lucky and turn things around for the time being. Good luck regularly picking failing businesses and getting a huge return.
