"You want to own stocks, right now."
I wrote that in bold letters back in March 2009 – right here in DailyWealth.
Those words might not sound like much now... but they were downright crazy in March 2009.

We'll go back to that specific moment in time. And then we'll look at where we stand in the markets today...
Investment bank Lehman Brothers had gone bankrupt, taking insurance giant AIG with it. The financial world was worrying which domino was going to tumble next. Heck, even the best pros wondered if our banking system would even survive.
We were in the midst of the Great Recession. The major stock market indexes had been slashed to half the value of their October 2007 peaks.
