But historically the pattern does not fit the model.Historical annual growth is ~3%, so if the average dividend rate is 2% then the real rate of return from equities should be 5%...but it is 7%. With a growth rate of 1.6% in the future we would be looking at 5.6% real growth in stock prices, and since bonds are returning a 1.5% real return rate the equity premium would be ~4%.jbw
