Anyone catch the article in the NY Times titled "Stocks vs. Bonds: A Risk Scoreboard"? In the article, Abby Schultz states that from 1926 to present bonds have outperformed stocks on a risk adjusted basis. I had my doubts so I did some research and it appears that it was actually stocks less dividends vs bonds including interest. Rather misleading.
