This is a talk by Jeremy Siegel given on the 9th of October 2007, and is part of the week's focus on asset allocation videos. In this talk Jeremy details some very interesting findings from his research of over 200 years of stock market returns. He notes the magic 7% long run average return figure, he also points out the usefulness of the earnings yield in determining whether stocks are attractive (i.e. if the earnings yield is above the long run average then that's attractive). Siegel also details his views on global demographics, and the implications for stock market investing, retirement, and emerging markets.
Jeremy James Siegel (born November 14, 1945) is the Russell E. Palmer Professor of Finance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Siegel comments extensively on the economy and financial markets: he appears regularly on networks such CNN, CNBC and NPR, and writes regular columns for Kiplinger's Personal Finance and Yahoo!
