EXCLUSIVE: Benzinga Poll Reveals Top Picks For A $25,000 Long-Term Investment In 2023

After a sour year in the stock market that saw the broad market S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) fall nearly 20%, and other pandemic-darlings like Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL), and Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) falling by as much as 50%, investors are looking for a sharp reversal to the upside in 2023.

What Happened: Last year, the S&P closed down 19.4%, coming in as the seventh worst year for the index, according to FactSet data, citing records stretching back to 1929. Many people who went long on stocks in 2021 saw their profits evaporate over the course of the year.

Turning the page to 2023, the S&P 500 is up 2.31%, while the aforementioned shares of Apple and Amazon are up 8.42%, and 9.22%, respectively.
