This week, author/advisor Larry Swedroe provided an excellent answer to a question I see from time to time: Should we fear a stock crash as a result of baby boomers retiring and selling off their shares?
“We’ll begin by pointing out that only unexpected events have an impact on stock prices. And if anything can be forecasted, it’s demographic data. You can be certain that investors in general are well aware of this trend, and thus have incorporated that knowledge and the expected effect of retirees’ equity sales into current prices.”
