Since 1926, the US stock market has rewarded investors with an average annual return of about 10% – the market’s long term average. But it’s important to remember that returns in any given year may be sky-high, extremely poor, or somewhere in between.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Actual returns may be lower. Investing risks include loss of principal and fluctuating value. There is no guarantee an investment strategy will be successful. Indices are not available for direct investment. Index returns are not representative of actual portfolios and do not reflect costs and fees associated with an actual investment.
