Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
I believe it was the song ‘Hunter and the Hunted’ from the wonderfully named group Simple Minds which contains the lyrics ‘how do I feel living in the eighties’.

Anyhow I thought about the 1980s for a couple of specific reasons today.
