If you invest in diversified stocks over the next 40 years, you will probably average around 10%. However, the results will vary dramatically from year to year. Some real good years you may be up 40%, in a real bad year you may be down 30%. The 10% figure is only a long term average.

The stock market has averaged 9.9% since 1926. See the link below.

Ken asks…

When investing in individual stocks, what are the facts i should consider?

what are the facts and data that i should consider when investing in stocks of an individual company?

financi4 answers:

The first thing is to read the financial statements (balance sheet, cash flow statement, statement of income), it is a bit boring but it is where you will find a lot of information.
You can find these docs on the company website or on the website of the regulator (ie SEC).
To have a better view on the relative strengthh on the companies, you can run some ratio to see if the company is properly capitalized, if the company is making money regularly, if the company is making profits…
You can look at ratio like Price earning to check if the stock is correctly evaluated.
A good book about it is Value investing for dummies, it explains the various factors to look at.
