Dec. 26 (Bloomberg) – On today’s “Insight & Action,” Adam Johnson looks at how the worst performing stocks of 2012 are now in the top 15 stocks of 2013 on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.” (Source: Bloomberg)

At least pretty close.

Time for a bit of insight and action.

Let me show you something.

The three worst stocks of 2012 made it into the top 15 in 2013. best buy was dead last in 2012, down 49%. what happened?

A new ceo, and it is up 239%. hewlett-packard, the same thing.

Pitney bowes, third worst.

Number seven this year.

Which got me thinking, maybe they are not first but they are in the top 15. so who was last this past year?

Look at what we found.

There are the three worst- performing stocks in the s&p 500. newmont mining, cliffs natural resources, peabody energy.

What do they all have in common?


Out of the ground.

-- they pull stuff out of the ground.

Serious that this is happening as the imf says it will be upping their global forecast.

The stocks have been down, maybe just in time to catch the upswing.

As a matter of fact -- newmont, fine.

Gold is miserable.

Gold has lost money for the first time in 12 years.

Just focusing on cliffs and peabody.

Talk about a cycle stock.

If you catch these cycles correctly, you set yourself up to potentially make some real money.

Finally, over here, peabody.

Same story.

All we are talking about is getting the cycle right.

I think i would rather be long
