1998 Midyear Review

We're a little more than halfway through the year and we Fools can't think of a better time to have a midyear market review. Like any other year, the market has been peppered with more colorful stories than we could possibly cover here. The Fool editorial staff has combed through the wreckage of the losers and the tickertape-filled halls of the winners and picked out ten of the best stories for this feature.

What makes our review of these ten stocks different from one that you might see in another forum? We've done it Fool-style! Not only do we give you the story, but we also explain how you might have avoided the loser or found the winner. You'll even find some Foolish insight as to what the future might hold. Our hope is that you'll read these articles, have some fun, and maybe learn a thing or two while you're at it. If you like what you see, check out our Investment Ideas area. It's updated daily with articles similar to ones that you'll find here.

There's one other thing that sets our review apart from the others -- you could win a $3,000 Web Street brokerage account. After you read the articles, try your hand at our Midyear Midterm. Answer these 10 Foolish and fun questions and you may win the account or one of several other prizes. Get crackin' Fools!
