Although the S&P remains high, we have seen considerable correction

Although the S&P 500 remains high, we have seen considerable correction in many stocks.  This is a pattern that has played itself out previously in the market since the march bottoms and the others times it preceded a move up.  [more]

buy and hold beats a really good hedge fund??? (analysis)

If you bought stocks in 1950 (as far back as yahoo finance data goes) and simply held until today (presuming an index fund had existed then), you would have earned about 7%/year as the S&P rose from 17 to ~1100 (from jan 1950 until jan 2010).  Adding in a 3%/year dividend that makes for a 10% return. If you bought stocks in jan 1960 and held until jan 2010 you would have made an average of 6%/year.  Adding in a 3% dividend, thatgets us to 9%/year. From 1970 to 2010, 6.5% + 3% = 9.5%.  From 1980 to 2010, 8% + 3% = 11%.  From 1990, 6% + 3% = 9%.     [more]
