Now that the 2nd decade of the 21st century is coming to a close we can reinforce timeless market lessons once again. The “Lost Decade” is a common example used when describing “the worst of times” for the S&P 500 where it returned an annualized rate of -0.95% from January 2000 through December 2009. Fast forward from January 2010 to June 2019, almost a full decade later, and the same index returned an annualized rate of +13.08%. In this show we will discuss the performance of some other parts of the market including small cap, value, international, and emerging markets. As investors we know that we should have a long-term perspective toward investing and that by maintaining that discipline through all seasons of investing we will increase our chances of success.
In this show you will learn about:
- The “Lost Decade” and how other parts of the global markets performed
- The following decade and how the global markets performed
- Alternatives to investing in the S&P 500
- How to be invested for the next decade and for the rest of your life
