Picking the Winner

Money Magazine identified the 30 best-performing stocks over the 30 years from 1972 until 2002.  The list is startlingly unpredictable. Rather than lots of technology or health-care stocks, it includes: 

  • Southwest Airlines, 
  • Worthington Steel, 
  • Dollar General 
  • UST Inc.  

Would you have been willing to bet big on any of those stocks back in 1972?
