A Sendero tradition that our founder Fred Middleton started early in his career is our, “Reasons why people did not invest in the stock market.” This annual list goes back to 1934 and highlights an event or a reason why you should not invest in the S&P 500. Negative stock market returns occur, on average, about one out of every four years. While there are always reasons not to invest, staying invested in stocks despite negative news has historically been profitable. History suggests the market is resilient and rewards investors over the long-term.
