Probable Outcomes makes a strong case that the stock market over the coming decade at best will deliver only average returns to buy-and-hold investors. Once again, as in his splendid earlier book, Unexpected Returns, Ed Easterling tells investors not what they would like to hear, but instead what they need to know.

Easterling has done it again. In an investing world obsessed with short-termism, Ed reminds us that the long-term matters, and that investors can prosper – handsomely – by recognizing that valuation and long-term secular trends have an immense impact on our own long-term investment success. Swimming against the current is for heroes and idiots, not for sensible mortals.
