Should you wait to see if the winners from 2013 continue to thrive in 2014, or should you take the profits and invest somewhere else? MoneyShow’s Jim Jubak thinks a bit of both might be the right answer. In the video below, Jim Jubak discusses some of the top stocks that MoneyShow’s experts have picked for the upcoming year. These stock picks, which outperformed in 2013, may do just the same this year.

October 15, 2013: U.S. markets opened lower Tuesday morning and all managed to poke their noses above the break-even line before sliding back into negative territory where they closed out the day. A report from Gallup on slumping economic confidencecoupled with the failure to end the government shutdown or to find a way to raise the debt limit sent stocks on a dive late in the day. Neither gold nor oil fared any better than stocks. And the 10-year Treasury note took a nasty hit as well. European and Asian markets closed higher today while Latin American markets were mixed.
