I honestly wouldn't be too surprised if we touched the high 5000's in the next 12-24 months. Take a long look at the historical chart of the Dow. We're only in the midst of this bear market and won't begin to recover until 2015-2018.
There is no way the DOW can go back to 14000 soon. We haven't even gotten to the future quarters with negative earnings posted. Take your money and preserve it. This is going to be a long tough and ugly road to travel before stocks go up. They have been too broken.
