Investing’s 5 Most Important Numbers?

A handful of numbers reveal some of investing’s deepest truths:

  • 94% of large-cap fund managers can’t beat the S&P 500 over 20 years.
  • The average investor in US mutual funds earned just 4% per year for the past 30 years (while the S&P 500 earned 10%).
  • If you’d missed the best 1.9% of trading days in the S&P 500 for the past 20 years, your returns would be 93% lower.
  • From 1926 until 2019, just 4% of US stocks generated all the market’s gains. 
  • $500 gifted to a newborn and invested at the S&P 500’s historical rate would have grown to nearly $500,000 by the time the child was 70 and retiring.
