If you needed a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving, here's a chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average for the first 11 months of 2014. The DJIA finished 2013 at 16,576.66 and today, November 25, it stands at 17,814.94 for an increase of 7.47%. And while this wouldn't be considered a banner year, it is a very nice year.
I would like to wish everyone who's visited this website "A Very Happy Thanksgiving".
