Author:   |    Publish date:



In my previous post, i laid out how anyone could invest an equal amount of money in stock market to become a millionaire in 30 – 40 years time. Today, I would like to show you the empirical evidence of it by using historical S&P 500 price and U.S. 10-Year Treasury Yield data to show you the difference between investing in stock market and bond market.

Chart 1: Accumulating $3 million over 40 Years by Investing in S&P 500 Index

Throughout the 40 years period, you only need to contributed $480,000 principal capital. Regardless of the volatility during the dotcom bubble in 2000 and GFC in 2009, you would still reap huge return in the long run. During the period, S&P 500 generates 2,461.8% of total return, or 8.52% return per annum.

Also, if you look at the chart, your capital grew tremendously in the last 10 years from 2008 – 2019, surging from less than $1 million to over $3 million in 12 years.
