Cumulative inflation from 12.31.1999 thru June 2016 was 43.22%.

Do the above numbers include dividends reinvested? Makes a big difference. They must, because otherwise the Nasdaq wouldn't show that much gain. Dec 31, 1999 it was at 4069 versus 5228 yesterday.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

I'll take an even longer view of results. The results approximate our working lives.

Apologies, I had the TV on mute when Squawk Box put the chart up and didn't hear the specifics. Just thought it was interesting.
