For example, here were some of the best performing global stock markets in 2005:
- Zimbabwe +1,584%
United Arab Emirates +116%
Saudi Arabia +104%

Oh, and if you're wondering how the telecommunications industry group finished -- don't ask. It was down 7.6%. But that's not as bad as the consumer electronics group, which fell 22% and was the worst investment group, according to Dow Jones.
