Quit with the “lie” stuff. I said “index” return. I hope you have reinvested dividends on everything you own since 2000. Using your numbers it is far below the 10% you quoted earlier.
Shall I now call you a liar?
Why would you not account for dividends? Seriously, dividends factor in. Who cares about the index return. People owning stocks or funds either are paid dividends or revinvest them. Why do you choose to ignore them when comparing how one asset has done versus another.
