Why Stocks?

Investing in the Stock market is historically proven to be one of the best investments and wealth builders. The S&P 500 Index has approximately generated an average annual return of 10%-11% since its creation in 1926 till 2018.
If you have invested $10,000 for 20 years with an annual return of 10% and only re-invested the profits without adding a dollar, you could’ve turned that into $67,275.
