Everybody's a long-term stock bull these days, but Ralph Acampora was wildly bullish before wildly bullish was cool. And the Prudential Securities analyst still is "out there," as some of his peers might politely say: Acampora's long-term target for the Dow Jones industrials is 18,500 by 2006, which works out to about a 10% compounded annual price gain between now and then--plenty of reason to stay in stocks, he figures.
