Nick Maggiulli recently posted the best article I’ve read on the topic of being a buyer during this stock market drawdown as he reframes where we’re at today and what this could mean over the next few years. Here is a quote I wanted to share:
So, if you think the market recovery will take:
* 1 year, then your expected annual return = 50%
* 2 years, then your expected annual return = 22%
* 3 years, then your expected annual return = 14%
* 4 years, then your expected annual return = 11%
* 5 years, then your expected annual return = 8%
Even if we assume it takes 5 years to recover, that would be 8% returns over the next half decade. Where else can you get 8% right now?
