Sharemarket Returns Graph - 28 years of data
This week I release the first part of a series of graphs showing sharemarket returns.
None of the graphs take into account tax. In particular either income tax or dividend imputation.
The first graph compares the ASX 200 All Ordinaries index with rolling one year deposit returns. I have produced these graphs in these free weekly previously.
The period commenced in March 1982 and finishes at the end of March 2010. A period of 28 years.
On an inflation adjusted basis the $100,000 invested in March 1982 is equivalent to over $300,000 in today's money.
The second graph shows the recent up and down nature of the current market as it finds its feet. Clearly the market is lacking overall direction.
The final graph shows the income earned by shares or the one year term deposits.
In some further emails I'll be providing graphs showing some additional detail. For example we'll be providing details of similar graphs for the ASX 200 Industrials and ASX 200 Resources.
The resources graph shows that the resources part of the market has almost fully recovered from the GFC. What would happen to this segment of the market if China suddenly sneezed?
