This article focuses on the performance of stocks in the stock market in the U.S. In the last few years, large capitalization stocks have been the winners in the stock market. However, in 1999, foreign stocks broke the four-year winning streak in big U.S. companies. The article also cites a market index analysis from Sigma Investment Management Co. illustrating the challenges of stock performance. The analysis shows how each index did for a particular year and who the winner was that year. Over a 34-year period, international stocks were the best performer in 11 years.
