The article presents an investor's opinion on the stock market in 2003. The recovery has barely begun, and already some discouraged investors are asking whether stocks are doomed to disappoint. History shows that you earn pretty good returns if you buy any reasonable cross section of blue chips right after a major bear market ends. But plenty of investors seem worried that the game is already over--and lost. I believe this sentiment is completely wrong and reflects a whole raft of misconceptions about the stock market. Here's my personal response to this concern and nine other pressing questions about investing.
