Buying Stocks at Record Highs: What Our Experts Think


Excerpted from Buying Stocks at Record Highs: What Our Experts Think:


Crista Huff, Chief Analyst, Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor

Investors often ask me whether I foresee a stock market correction or crash looming in the coming months.

Historically, the S&P 500 index rises 20% or more, two to four times each decade. You can get a good visual of the performance history on this bar chart published by Macrotrends. Notice that during the current decade, we’ve only experienced one 20%+ year in the S&P 500. That was in 2013. That’s great news, which tells you that we are far more overdue for a big year in the stock market than we are overdue for a down year.
