  1. Anybody know the average historical return for the S&P 500 index for the last 60+ years. I have heard 10% and 12%. Anybody know which one is correct?

    with or without dividends
  3. BJL


    what period exactly?

    12% over the last 60 years
    10% over the last 80 years

    but what you should be concerned about ... how about the next 10 years?
