RECESSIONARY RIDE: Privately owned Fidelity Investments reports that its employee share values increased in 2008, but 18% less than they did the year before.

It's a good thing to be in the Fidelity Investment family at this point though since the parent company looks like it will get through this down time fairly well, and BostonCoach will benefit from this back up. -- J.L.
