Ever wish for a do-over? What if you could go back 15 years, and buy the right stocks at the right moment?

Fifteen years ago, in 2002, the stock market was in the doldrums. The terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, had badly shaken confidence, the tech bubble had burst, and the market had fallen to multiyear lows. In 2008, the market took another huge hit, finally bottoming in 2009. Since then markets have gradually recovered and now have soared to record heights.

Just in case you stumble across a time machine and set it for July 2002, here’s a list of stocks to take with you. Returns don’t include dividends, simply the increase in the value of the stock. Prices are based on the closing prices on July 30, 2002, and July 28, 2017.
