    The Ride Along Sunset Boulevard

    One of my favorite film directors is Billy Wilder. In his film Sunset Boulevard, Wilder cast Gloria Swanson as a faded silent movie star who entices a floundering young screenwriter into her fantasy world. The film noir takes place in a palestrial spider's web where the actress madly dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen. Wilder weaves together a story of fading aspirations that drive the main characters to a fatal conclusion.

    Meanwhile, the film industry moves ahead.

    To be sure, the last decade for the major stock market indexes has been underwhelming. Recently, PIMCO, one of the largest global money managers reported that "The cult of equity is dying." This is not surprising. Boomers can not take risk and the earlier generation, while residing in homes that have lost value, have few prospects for advancement. Going further down the age ladder….college-age individuals never witnessed a sustained bull market.

    Although there are times when investing in stocks may appear as fantasy or fatal, in the long run the stock market will move ahead.
