I didn't take the comment as personal. I just thought the headline for the article was a bit interesting, so I just through it out there in case anyone wanted to look at the article. I had not heard of either one of those indexes before.

Yes, 30 years would go back to 1982, which was a very unique time. (I was lucky enough to have sold a house during that time, and put the money in treasury zero coupon bonds (CATS and TIGREs))

If the indexes just went back 20 or 25 years, I'm sure the results would have been a lot different, and shown equities outperforming treasuries.

My posting was definetly NOT a suggestion that treasuries are going to repeat that performance anytime soon. My opinion is that treasuries are about the last place to be right now....although I could be wrong.

Sure wished LSU showed up Monday night....maybe they did, but just got shown up by the greatly superior team. Guess I have to say roll tide instead of low tide.
