5 Stocks the Bull Market Left Behind

Looking back over the bull market that began in March 2009, stock investors should be clinking their proverbial glasses. Since the bull began, the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index has returned an annualized 19%. Looking ahead, however, they may be wondering how much higher stocks can go, especially with the S&P trading well above historical averages, at 18 times estimated year-ahead earnings.

Still, even an eight-and-a-half-year rising tide hasn’t lifted every boat. For one reason or another, these five stocks have lagged the return of the S&P 500 during the bull market. For investors willing to take a chance on these unloved shares, we think they have the potential to make up the lost ground.
