The article reports on stock market performance. David Mangefrida, the national director of asset management tax services for Ernst & Young, discusses stock strategies. When stocks are over-performing in relation to competing stocks, but not necessarily going up, then the competitive stock appears cheaper. If a firm is performing better than the competitors in its industry then it should plan on making acquisitions. Stocks, relative to their peers, are viewed as less volatile when priced at double digits. If the stock exchange is in a continuously down market then companies can attempt stock buy backs because of supply and demand economics.
