Chart of the Day: Stocks for the Long Run

Samuel A. Kiburz Mar 1, 2023
the $1 went to $10 in the first 20 years, vs. $500,000 to $2,300,000 in last 20


Today’s Chart of the Day is a reoccurring one we like to keep updated with current data. It first appeared in the book, “Stocks for the Long Run” by Jeremy Siegel in 1994 and shows the return of various asset classes dating back to 1801. This chart is legendary in our industry to show true, historical “long run” returns.

It’s important to note this chart is logarithmic and shows the percentage changes vs. actual values. If not, it would look like the chart went straight to the moon, as the $1 went to $10 in the first 20 years, vs. $500,000 to $2,300,000 in the last 20. If all goes well, imagine what the next 20 years could look like.
