Interesting article about the probability of stocks outperforming T-Bills.

Good article - proves the Norwegian widow was right all along - spend the dividends and hold forever.

Not that my mind is made up or anything.

Re: How Long is Long?

He needs to include by HOW MUCH stocks beat t-bills when they did outperform.

This is like saying "Rabbit beats the fox 26% of the time".

The other 74%, not so good for the rabbit...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
