Nifty or Gold, Inflation Adjusted Returns Have Been Lousy for 6 Years
The real thing to note is:
Let’s ignore the “high” of 2007 – just to believe it was an outlier.
the highs of 2010 and 2015 were much higher in the Nifty, but they are actually lower in inflation adjusted terms.
As much as it remains true that stocks should beat inflation in the longer term, have they really? Today, we are lower than the highs of 2008 by a large number. We are even lower than the highs of 2010 – and that is literallysix years of nothingness.
