 It has never happened before…
 
The benchmark S&P 500 Index closed 2017 at 2,673.61. This was good for a gain of roughly 1% in December. But it also marked an unprecedented feat…
 
You see, 2017 was the first year in history where U.S. stocks ended every single month in the green. Only three other years – 1958, 1995, and 2006, which each had 11 positive months – have even come close.
 
All told, the S&P 500 rallied 19.4% for the full year. Including dividends, U.S. stocks returned nearly 22% in 2017, among the best annual gains in history.
 
 In short, our colleague Steve Sjuggerud was right again…
 
DailyWealth readers know Steve has been one of the most outspoken bulls over the past nine years. He was among the first analysts anywhere to turn bullish on U.S. stocks back in 2009. And he has reaffirmed his bullish stance again and again as stocks have soared to new highs.
