No single asset class is the best performing year after year. They rotate over time, sometimes dramatically in just one year. Every year we update our "Periodic Table of Asset Classes" or as we sometimes call it, our "Skittles Chart." We also include a balanced portfolio of various asset classes, as indicated by the yellow. As you can see, it will never be the top performer, nor at the bottom because it is a weighted average. To view this fun chart in PDF format, please click here.
