Stock Plunge Nears Bear Territory After Fed Hike
To quantify the equity risk premium, here are the numbers:
Over the 21 years and 11 months ended in November 30, 2018, the risk-free 90-day U.S Treasury Bill averaged an annual return of 2.1%, compared to a 7.2% annualized return on the S&P 500 stock index.
This period of nearly 22 years encompasses two full economic and bear market cycles — the tech-bubble bursting in 1999 and the global financial crisis of 2008 — so it is a fair period to examine in illustrating the equity risk premium.
