The article included these pearls of wisdom about the stock market: “It’s a dangerous game . . it’s a vote of confidence that things are getting worse . . the market has become a crapshoot . . the small investor has become an endangered species . . ” When those words were published, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at the 2,000 level, down from the peak of 2,700 reached just before the market crash of October 1987.

To demonstrate the deficiencies of a short-term approach to longterm investment, I will examine two pervasive short-term strategies and show how mutual fund investors have followed them—to their detriment. The first is market timing—the attempt to shift assets from stocks to bonds or cash in hopes of escaping a stock market dip, then to shift the assets from bonds or cash back to stocks in an attempt to ride the next stock market wave.

Now let’s say that inflation is 3 percent; then the market’s real return is 7 percent, and costs would consume nearly one-third of the market’s reward. And taxes must be paid—sooner or later—by the investor. Fair or not, taxes are assessed, not on real returns, but on the (higher) nominal returns.
