Top Stocks of the Decade
Over the past ten years, 116 companies have showed investors returns of more than 1,000%. Here we list for you the top ten companies you should have invested in on January 1, 2000. (We've limited the top-ten to companies with market capitalizations of at least $1 billion so that there's more of a chance you'll have heard of them.) The returns, which are cumulative, come from investment-tracker Morningstar Inc. and run through Dec. 15, 2009. They include both stock-price appreciation and dividends.
