NASDAQ crossed 5,000 for the first time in 15 years. That’s a long-time to wait, especially if you’re not getting paid.
Back in 2000, when it peaked, NASDAQ yielded one-tenth of the S&P 500 or 0.12%.
Imagine investing for 15-years and getting paid.
I’ll use a 4% yield as an example, which was hard to do but it was doable.
4% compounded over 15-years multiplies your money by 1.8x–$1million becomes $1.8 million.
15-years is a long-time—a big chunk of your retirement to get nothing.
You can’t afford to miss the boat this time around.
