Stocks vs. bonds

John Mauldin's weekly (I think) newsletter samples index expert Rob Arnott in the article titled, "Why Bother With Bonds?"

The premise, or purpose, is the debunkification of the rumor that over every long period of time, stocks outperform bonds. We have just gone through a long period where that didn't happen. Like 40 years long.

That all makes an excellent argument for owning stocks.
