Hang In There
Over the past 30 years the stock market has
produced an average annual rate of return around
8. If you were out of the market during the
best 30 months your return would drop to just 2.

Sources of Long-Term Performance
Portfolio Rebalancing Makes a Big Difference
16
The Root of the Problem
  • It all started with the housing bubble
  • We have about 1.5 million too many homes
  • This is about 12 months worth of sales
  • Much of the problem is regionally based
  • A dramatic slowdown in building and an increase
    in housing affordability is what eventually will
    solve the problem.

Three Stages of a Bear Market
Stage Characteristics
1. DENIAL Economy shows signs of slowing and stocks fall from their highs, sometimes sharply. Investors shrug it off and act as though the bull market will last forever.
2. REALITY Stocks continue to decline. Investors start to realize how weak the economy really is.
3. SURRENDER Fear of deeper losses and a recession become so worrisome that investors give up on stocks, setting the stage for a rebound.
