Stock Market Expectations

We all want to make as much money as we can when we get involved with the stock market. The odds in the investing game are tilted in our favor. That is why we get in and stay in in the first place. Looking at the entire 20th century, your total return for a one hundred year buy and hold approach would have been 10.4% a year. Unfortunately, when you adjust that impressive return for inflation and various operational fees and expenses, your real total return drops to an average round 6.5%. Of course there are no guarantees. Some years you will make a lot of money and some years you will lose money. Furthermore, past expectations do not guarantee future performance. At B & A Sector Watch, we use enhanced index funds. With enhanced index funds, you get twice the performance of the S & P 500 or the NASDAQ 100. We are serious and focused when it comes to making money.
