Why the Markets Are Surging Right Now

The Markets are absolutely soaring today after Congress passed The Taxpayer Relief Act in the wee hours of the fiscal-cliff debate. Of course, as much enthusiasm and relief is flowing through the markets today, the work isn't done yet. Democrats and Republicans still have to come together and debate the new debt limit, as well as cuts to the federal budget.

For investors, it's a great day to be in the market, but timing these big surges is impossible. That's why The Motley Fool's chief investment officer has selected his No. 1 stock for 2013, which should crush the market regardless of what political gridlock occurs.
