March is finally over.
While it seems like a long time away, think for a moment, how long do you think it will take us to get back to those all-time highs we so fondly remember in February. Will we be back to those numbers in six months? In 1 year? In 3 years? 5? No one knows, but here are the numbers.
If you think we will have this behind us in 1 year, we need to average a 31% rate of return over the next 12 months to reach all-time highs.
If you think it is going to take longer, here is what we have to average on an annual basis to get back to our February Numbers.
2 Years-14.5% Average
3 Years- 9.43% Average
5 Years -5.5% Average
10 Years- 2.74% Average
Given American ingenuity and science, I have full confidence we can get through this, and with those numbers even if it takes three years to do so, it would mean the market averaged 9.43% annually to get there.
I'm still betting on the world to solve this, and the extra family time in the evenings make it better while we are waiting.
