The problem is that November has been a really bad year for succesful stocks:
Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold was up 112.2% for the year at the end of October. The miner has fallen 21% this month. Monsanto was up 85.9% at the end of last month. The agriculture company has fallen 7.4% since then. Technology companies have been among the hardest hit. Apple, up 123.9% at the end of last month, is down 9.7% so far in November.It is rare to find money managers like Vanderbilt's Bill Spitz who can recognize investment opportunities when they occur.
