The general outlook for 2010, if you believe Barron’s, or any of the other publications I read, is positive, with most pundits being fairly bullish. What a great way to end one year — investingwise a good one — with a following 12-month winner projected.

The economy will be slower to recover than the market, in all probability, and may not be in full swing until 2011. Even some of the bears are cautiously optimistic about the market, though, in 2010, and so enjoy the holidays and look forward to a great year, okay?

My best wishes for a prosperous 2010 and, for the next week or so, a wonderful family holiday.
