WSJ: Stocks Tarnished by Lost Decade

Historically, stocks rise about two years out of every three, for an average gain of 7% a year when controlled for inflation, according to Prof. Siegel. Stocks have shown gains for almost every 10-year period since 1925 -- 98.6% of the time, according to Ned Davis Research.

But when stock investing becomes a mania, as it did in the 1920s, the 1960s and the 1990s, it leads to prolonged periods of subpar performance, according to financial historian Richard Sylla of New York University's Stern School of Business.

If you're trying to see how an investment in an individual stock like GE would have performed over time, you can get historical stock price and dividend data on Yahoo. Call up the stock quote and there'll be a link for 'Historical Prices' on the left.  The historical price list has a column labeled "Adj. Close" that accounts for dividends and splits.  You can download the table to Excel and plot or calculate the return for any time frame you want.

There's also historical data for indices if you want to do the same thing for the broad market or a sector.

You could also look in  the most recent annual report.  Many companies include the mountain charts to show the long term performance of the stock.

Let us know if you find a better way to do it.

MSN Money has just discontinued their chart for growth of $10,000 over various periods of time for CEF's, funds and stocks. Contacted them and it will not be available at MSN.

Have been searching also (this chart was great way to find long term winners).

Have you found a site with this info?
