(Worthy News) - U.S. stocks had their worst annual performance since 2008, closing out a rocky year that tempered investors' expectations for gains in 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a basket of 30 stocks, lost 2.2% in 2015, while the broader S&P 500 fell 0.7%.
The S&P’s loss ended three years of double-digit gains for the index, but was far from the nearly 40% dive it took in 2008, a year of financial crisis. [ Source ]
