Morgan Stanley says industrial companies will dominate the market going forward
Over the past few weeks, it has made no bones about what it calls a “rolling bear market” – or the type of long, drawn-out pullback that infects sectors one by one.

Business Insider has outlined the major moments from 2007 to 2009. From the initial reports of subprime defaults to the collapse of Lehman Brothers to AIG’s second bailout, here are the 27 scariest moments of the financial crisis.
