The stock market can be unpredictable, but that’s only if you look at a year or two. Over longer investment horizons, returns are quite stable — and very strong! There’s a reason people call the S&P 500 the greatest wealth-generating machine known to man.

If you invested in the S&P 500 for any 25-year period since 1928, there’s no way you could have made less than a 5% return. In fact, you would have a 94% chance of making between 7% and 15% annually. Over 25 years, a 12% annual return rate turns $100,000 into nearly $2 million!

It’s important to get your investments right early on. It can make a difference of millions of dollars over the course of your career.
