“Time is the friend of stocks, the enemy of bonds”

"Time is the friend of stocks, the enemy of bonds” has been cited in print since at least 2008 and is of unknown origin. The saying includes the word “time,” but probably means “time” plus “inflation.” Long-term inflation will increase stocks, but bonds remain fixed.

David Pearson said…
What “squares the circle” of bonds and gold is an absence of long term real growth expectations. Long term real growth is the enemy of bonds and gold, and the friend of stocks.
