Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

That it not to say though that stock markets were not sometimes a bit volatile…but such is life. And as discussed before, if you want to make progress as an investor during the overall 2020s, then do not expect the 2010s to be a great guide.
