In the 10 years that ended Sept. 30, the average annual return on stocks was a paltry 1.9%.
Not only is that far below the historical average of 8.9%, it wasn't even enough to keep up with inflation. Yes, if your portfolio tracked the market for the past 10 years, you've actually lost ground.
And even that 8.9% historical average return on stocks since 1928 is actually just 5.85% after accounting for inflation. While that's better than losing ground, it's not a very effective way to build wealth.
But what if you had access to the advice of experts that could provide you with stock picks that deliver much juicier returns – not over the course of decades or years but in a matter of months, weeks, or in some cases days?
Well, you can have access to such experts every day by subscribing to our new Private Briefing service. In every edition of Private Briefing Executive Editor Bill Patalon shares insights and stock picks from a team of global investing gurus that will help you create wealth far more quickly than sitting back and waiting for the markets to inch higher.
