From 1989 to 2008, a twenty year time period, the S & P 500 averaged an 8.43% return. Because of the large bull run in stock in the 1990s, many people decided to retire right at the top in 1999.

Did he get a "do over?" Unfortunately not! Find out what he got instead, in today's Market Intel segment--it's one that you definitely do not want to miss! MASTERING MONEY is on the air!
