I found this interesting chart today at EconomPic (EconomPic Data: "Armageddon" Trades Anyone?
), where they were looking for good Armaggedon trades, showing that "over the past three months; Campbell Soup Co
(which also happened to be the ONLY
stock in the S&P 500 that was up yesterday) and Taser International
are up 16% and 34% respectively. This compares very favorably to the S&P 500, which has struggled and is down 14% over that time frame."
So for all you Sky is Falling types, I guess the public agrees with you.
