Let’s face it. Hardly anyone outperforms the stock market benchmarks, consistently.
Frustrated investors know the odds are stacked against them. Some think markets are practically rigged like a game of three-card monty on a crowded New York City street.
But the real reason individual investors underperform the stock market is they’ve been trained think the Dow Jones Industrial Average (“Dow-30”), the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite should guide their investment decisions.
But the truth is the average investor doesn’t have the wherewithal to withstand the high volatility of the stock market.
Stock market returns look great on paper, but most investors get frightened out of the stock market at the worst times.
If this sounds familiar then don’t feel bad because you’re not alone. The only reason stock prices do decline so rapidly is because of enormous selling pressure from scared investors.
It’s no wonder a study by Dalbar Inc. shows that average investors missed out on more than 77% of the 20-year annualized stock market returns (1.9% vs. 8.4%) from 1989 - 2008.
In fact the best 20-year returns achieved by average equity fund investors, relative to the S&P 500 was in 2013.
That year, average investors managed to gain an annualized 5.02% while the 20-year annualized return was 9.22%.
We don’t blame these frustrated individual investors. The financial media has programmed the wrong thing into their heads for generations.
At Rowe Research/True Market Insiders, we teach investors how to reduce the risk and volatility of their investment portfolios without sacrificing strong returns.
Using our technical indicators, tools and data, our subscribers are quickly narrowing their scope, of the financial markets, to identify the strongest areas of each asset class.
EXAMPLE #1: Strong sectors of the U.S. stock market might be technology, energy, industrials and financials. At the same time, sectors of the U.S. stock market experiencing weak trends might be healthcare, basic materials, consumer staples and utilities.
EXAMPLE #2: Strong sectors of the fixed income market might be U.S. government bonds (Treasurys), convertible debt and international sovereign debt. At the same time, sectors of the fixed income market experiencing weak trends might be high yield bonds (“junk bonds”), inflation protected debt and municipal bonds.
EXAMPLE #3: Strong sectors of the commodity market might be energy and industrial metals. At the same time, sectors of the commodity market experiencing weak trends might be precious metals and agriculture.
By keeping a diversified investment portfolio, containing a several different asset classes (not only U.S. stocks, investors can avoid the big swings in account value that cause panic selling.
But investors, watching the financial media, tend to focus mainly on the stock market, with little understanding of the remaining 5 asset classes:
- Cash equivalents
- Fixed income
- Foreign Currencies
- Non-U.S. equities
Individual investors, trained to focus on the stock market, are limiting themselves to a high risk game.
They tend to believe that diversification into other asset classes means sacrificing returns. (If I’m in half stocks and half bonds, and the stock market goes up 10% and my bonds only go up 5% then the portfolio – as a whole – will only be up 7.5%)
The following image breaks the global financial markets into 13 asset classes and tracks the performance over the 15 years from 2001 – 2016.
It was only in one of those years, 2013, that the U.S. stock market took first place and second place (small-cap stocks and large-cap stocks).
In recent years, however, U.S. stocks have done exceptionally well, relative to other asset classes.
This sets up a terrible sense of expectation from individual investors, even if they are using the proven strategy of buying what most recently has worked well. Investors are likely to overinvest in one very volatile asset class, U.S. stocks, and not allocate a large enough percent of their investment capital to the remaining asset classes.
Our data programs allow investors to find the strongest parts of the U.S. and global equity markets. Our online classroom platforms teach investors how to invest in a number of different asset classes as well as how to determine how much money to allocate to each position. We also teach investors how to hedge positions to reduce risk and volatility.
