Hank Tkachuk received a nice surprise 10 days ago when he opened the updated statement for his employer-sponsored retirement savings account.


The Concordia College professor hadn't looked at his account since spring.

"I was a little afraid of what I'd see," he said, referring to the big plunge in stock and bond prices.

But he found that the markets' recent rally had returned his balance almost back to where it was before the markets tanked.

Tkachuk isn't alone.
