    Over the past month, the stock market staged a strong reversal as the Dow and the Nasdaq rose 6.9% and 9.1% respectively. As often happens when investment optimism begins to replace a long period of pessimism, small stocks did better than their larger cousins.

    However, many blue chips also performed very well. For example, our first three picks from last month, JP Morgan Chase (JPM), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), and Ford (F) jumped 21.5%, 5.3%, and 42.3% respectively. Our fourth pick, SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), dropped 2.4%.
