Rebound Investments for '09

Rebound Investments for '09

The past year has been the hardest on investors in a lifetime. Many professional investors, however, are hoping stocks can bounce back in 2009 as eventually the recession and credit crisis come to an end.

If a recovery comes in 2009—and that's still a big if—where will it benefit investors first? BusinessWeek asked mutual fund managers for their picks of stocks that could rebound strongly in the new year.

Take a look at the investments listed here, and decide whether you think they have been unfairly punished by the past year's stock sell-off, or are due for even more economic pain in the year ahead. (Stock performance in 2008 is through Dec. 22.)
