This is a comment to an earlier post on the supposed superiority of stocks over bonds in terms of rewards given for risks taken.

I seriously doubt that it is any sort of foregone conclusion ("a gimme") that either will under/outperform the other when risks are held equal, or else the arbitageurs would step in to make it so.

Furthermore, anyone who says equity-like returns can only be made from stocks hasn't looked for themselves at trading high yields, Brady's, long zeros, etc.
