Stocks: Strategies For A Challenging Decade Ahead

ImageThe stock market serves as a long-term savings vehicle for many investors. This is because it offers a considerably higher potential rate of return than a traditional deposit savings account at a bank. Of course, this added returns potential comes with a considerable cost, which is the risk that the savings dedicated to stocks might decline in value instead of rise. Because of this risk, most people will only put money into stocks that they can afford to keep socked away for many years. So despite the fact that significant attention in the media is focused on daily stock price movements, many investors would be far better served to resist the emotions tied to these daily swings and instead maintain a long-term perspective when evaluating stocks based on past performance and future returns potential. With this broader perspective in mind, while they have certainly performed well over the last few years since the outbreak of the financial crisis, the outlook for U.S. stocks appears most challenging over the coming decade. Thus, it is worthwhile for investors to begin preparing today to not only navigate but also capitalize on what is likely to be a far more opportunistically driven stock market environment in the decade ahead.
