Following yesterday’s look at performance by years, Eric Willer in our Dallas office sent me these charts — they are quite instructive as to how markets have performed over various decades:
Annualized S&P500 Returns by Decade
Return History for Common Stocks 1926-2009 (inflation adjusted)

Good stuff — thanks, Eric!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
