Abstract

The Dow Jones industrial average's 666-point plunch on Feb. 2, and its 363-point drop on Jan. 30, were sharp reminders that stocks are risky after their extraordinary gains of recent years, and bonds, the chief alternative to stocks, are shaky too, as rising interest rates are sure to push down prices.
