MarketWatch rounds up 10 of its most interesting topics over the past week.

1. 'Ugly truth' for investors

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 3% for 2019 through Jan. 10, but investors are still reeling from the 12% fourth-quarter decline. This detailed article about how massive injections of liquidity by the Federal Reserve and other central banks has propped up stocks for 10 years (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-market-investors-its-time-to-hear-the-ugly-truth-2019-01-05) struck a chord with hundreds of thousands of MarketWatch readers.

2. Dividend stocks that beat the Dow and S&P 500
