I can't find it at the moment, but I was given a presentation by Edward Jones a few years ago which showed the various asset classes and how they had done in each 5 year period over the past 20-25 years. Not one of them repeated at #1, and it was rare if any of them repeated in the same position at all. Frequently you would find one class jockeying from #4 to #2 back to #3 then to #1 and back to #3.

A chart that may be similar to what you are speaking of is "The Callan Periodic Table of Investment Returns (1986 - 2005)":
