Through these dramatic declines, investors nonetheless continued to enjoy healthy returns. The S&P 500 in mid-summer, as an example, dropped almost 100 points. During that same period, 20 trading sessions, investors enjoyed a return on the S&P of 13.6%: 2007/20070824_sp500.asp

A similar scenario played out through much of October and November, when the S&P 500 lost nearly 150 points. Meanwhile, investors racked up returns of nearly 13%: 2007/20071130_sp500.asp
