The Next 20 Years
What might the last 20 years say about possible asset returns for the next 20 years.
Here are returns for various assets from two different time periods.
The table is divided into two sections. One section is assets that have performed near or above their historical returns over the last 20 years and the other sections has the assets that have underperformed their historical long term averages.
The expectation is that over the next 20 years the assets that have underperformed their long term average returns over the last 20 years would be likely to outperform over the next 20 year period. International stocks and commodities look like they will possibly outperform. One scenario where this could easily happen is if the dollar weakens with respect to other currencies over this time period.
It will be interesting to watch this prediction going forward.
