Best of 2009, Top 20 Stocks With 1000% Returns

The year 2009 was quite the roller coaster ride for investors. The S&P 500 started the year making fresh decade lows then proceeded to embark on a huge 60%+ rally from its March lows. For the skilled stock pickers who simply bought on January 1st, there were only 20 stocks that kicked the markets ass and yielded 1000%+ returns.

Topping the list this year is Diedrich Coffee (DDRX) which started the year at a measly $.36 per share. Today it closed at $34.73, leaving the stock with a staggering 9,547.22% return for the year. That means if you would have invested even $10,000 in the stock on January first it would be worth $954,722.00 today. Not bad huh?
