Seattle and Mouth Breather,
I am not trying to convince you or anyone else of anything. Purely an academic view of markets where in the past investors had the same view as yours.
Similar delusion peak 3/31/2000 through 3/31/2019 S&P 500 Index return 3.5%, with reinvested dividends 5.5%. Far less than what you model.
Good luck with your view.
WTF are you talking about? I haven’t seen either of those posters ‘model’ anything.
And “purely an academic view”. Don’t make me laugh.
