Financial markets rarely stick to the script, and this year is no different.
Investments traditionally considered safe bets such as utilities, gold and government bonds were supposed to flop in 2014 as investors started to pour money into higher-risk, higher-growth stocks that would benefit from a pickup in the economy.

A cooling-off period has been called in the fight between the makers of a wildly popular hot sauce and the Southern California city that says its air is too spicy to bear.
The Irwindale City Council delayed a decision for two weeks Wednesday night on declaring the Sriracha (suhr-AH'-chuh) plant a public nuisance.
About 100 supporters of the hot sauce including owner David Tran rallied outside City Hall before the meeting.
Irwindale's city attorney requested the delay, saying he's in settlement talks with attorneys for Sriracha maker Huy Fong Foods.
Two weeks ago, council members tentatively but unanimously voted the 2-year-old plant was a nuisance.
If the council had finalized its vote Wednesday, Huy Fong would have had 90 days to stop releasing the spicy emanations that neighbors say are burning their eyes and throats.
