This chart comes to us via Blaine Rollins of 361 Capital. I find it provides great context for the current markets, especially given the amount of bubble chatter we hear these days.
How common are double-digit equity gains? How often do we see markets up 20 percent or more in a given year?
As it turns out, when markets are in the green, double-digit gains are the norm. Only one in four years where markets are positive do we actually record single-digit gainers. Indeed, three out of four positive years (19/76 or 0.25 percent) see gains that are in the double digits.
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.
