Thank Me and Chocolate for the Stock Market Recovery: James Altrucher
"It's not bragging if it's true." That's according to author, entrepreneur and wunderkind James Altrucher. He claims that he's responsible for the gigantic market rally since March 2009. And what a rally it's been... The S&P 500 (GSPC) bottomed out around 683 in early March of 2009 and has since climbed back to over 1,500. That's a more than 100% jump in just over 4 years. Altrucher says he played his part in kickstarting the market rally by handing out chocolates at the door of the New York Stock Exchange
