I wish you and yours a 2012 punctuated with much happiness, and above all, the best possible good health.

S&P 500 outperforms the USD priced ASX 200 in 2011

1 US dollar invested in each of the two markets at the close of the first trading day of 2011, would by the close on December 30 have shrunk to 90 cents on the ASX 200, and 98 cents on the S&P 500. Part of this difference is explained by higher dividend yields of Aussie stocks.
