Sure. That's why he's using a 6% return for the stock market instead of the long term historical average of 10%.

I took Engr27's question about lower returns not just going to a more moderate 6% growth, but much less. Asked another way, "with stock market valuations at all time highs wouldn't we expect lower returns going forward such as 2 or 3% or just flat for a while?"

How might that play out?
