    I wasn't alive from 1950-1970 so that does not count

    No doubt. I wonder if you calculated using that same time frame, someone who rolled over 5yr treasuries and reinvested the interest earned what they earned.

    When I say risk adjusted I mean more regarding the authors point that the average investor returned 3% plus or w/e the number was. Not many people just sat in the S&P for 20 years but a lot of people owned CD's and treasuries.

    Most people today don't have that luxury. They need returns to keep them from eating away at principal. Younger people need returns to keep up with the cost of living.

    You could have ignored the bull market entirely from 1980-2000 and averaged well over 5% in CD's and Bonds depending on how long you were willing to lock the money up for. Even from 2000-2008 a 5% plus return was achievable in bonds and CD's. On a risk adjusted basis it was probably a smarter move than owning stocks.

    That is the difference and that is why this is not a "bull market". This is a market built on people having no alternative to stocks. End of story.

  • Why Retirees Should Never Invest In Annuities [View article]
    That is why they made the big insurers "systematically important". This way they get bailed out.

  • Buying LQD Is A Waste Of Time [View article]
    I don't see the problem with LQD. Personally I like VWESX better but it's more aggressive in terms of duration. But as a cash alternative, you buy LQD, pay $7.95, hang out there for a few months until you are ready to deploy the capital elsewhere. No need to go crazy building your own portfolio.

    Why do you say "annuities" in the title when you are being specific to variable annuities? Why not just say variable annuities?

  • Dollar Bid Ahead Of Yellen [View article]
    She needs to change it up and talk about how things are improving but that they will be very patient. Tell everyone she is raising rates but not raising them. Then tell everyone it's partly cloudy out but also partly sunny.

  • Why Do Masochistic Greeks Want To Be In The Euro? [View article]
    "Greece had to fiddle its books in order to get into the Eurozone"

    I am pretty sure Greece needed a bank to do that. In this case I believe it was the Squid. Could have been JPM too. Those banks profited enormously from fiddling those books. As did a few people at the top in Greece. Worked pretty well for the masses for a while as they all went to work for .gov and got a sweet deal.

    Oh well. You reap what you sow and until people see that the banks are the root cause of the problem this will go on.

    Those banks are fine. 250 billion is peanuts. The Bernak punched 85 bil a month into the computers. They can have those banks recapped in a nanosecond.
