you have no idea if the next ten plus years will resemble That's true. In fact I have no idea if I'll get hit by a bus tomorrow. But I have to make decisions based on history and my own conclusions.Recalling a statistic from "Stocks For The Long Run", domestic stocks have outperformed bonds historically over 80% of all 10 year periods, 90% of all 20 year periods, and 100% of all 30 year periods.Another fact is current interest rates: five year treasuries are yielding 2.7%, actually a negative yield when you adjust for taxes and inflation. And while rates could go lower, it seems more likely to me that they'll rise over the next few years. So I have these two facts, and I have money to invest that I won't need for 30 years. My conclusion is that stocks are the best investment.Nick
