payback in 2014?

After a great year for equity markets in 2013, investors are looking to next year and wondering whether there will be a "payback" coming, as described in the Schwab Market Perspective. 

We expect the US market to experience a decent pullback at some point during 2014, but still believe stocks will end the year higher. 

Despite the strong returns in 2013, according to our friends at ISI Research, there have been 11 years since 1950 that the S&P 500 has posted 25% plus gains, and with the exception of two recession years, the S&P posted positive results in the following year.
