The Death of Equities


The most common question I get is focused on the likelihood of abnormally low future returns on stocks.  This is not only a common question today, it is one of the most common questions investors have after any difficult market period.  How can anyone possibly know what happens next?  There is always a list of reasons for the market to go up, as well as to go down.  The “Death of Equities” is  the most famous stock market article ever written.  The August 1979 Business Week  article is entirely focused on the bad news of the time.  Like today, it was obvious why investing in the market didn’t make sense.  There was one group of investors who benefited most following the bad news and they were viewed as “out of touch” with reality.  What do you believe?  Is it possible you and the experts are wrong again?
