A year that won't be missed

2008 was just awful for most of the broader stock averages, and my portfolio suffered as well. But Friday is the first trading day of the new year, and hopefully 2009 will work out better than the past 12 months. In any case, most of my portfolio holdings enjoyed a strong rally today, with several names up 8-10% or more. It's difficult (and often a mistake) to draw any conclusions from a low volume holiday session, but it was gratifying to see gains nonetheless. I hope you all have a great New Year.
