Young Research’s Retirement Compounders common stock program has a ten year compounded rate of return of 9.8% per year. As you can see in the chart that’s better than the 6.8% by both the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average. In this market I think a ten year historical record is imperative in gaining some perspective. It’s easy for hard charging sales types to promote five year returns without mentioning 2008. The prudent investor looks at both the good and the bad times to set his course. And that most certainly includes looking at 2008.
