Investing in Stocks — What Are The Best ETF Stocks

What is this strategy for investing in stocks?

Some of you must have heard of it, but the strategy is called the “Index fund strategy.” S&P 500 historical annual returns over decades have returned more positive results than negative. This means that, on average, the S&P indexes have gone up yearly. I would be quick to point out that past successes do not always guarantee future ones, but these recent successes can serve as indicators to investors as to where they want to put their money.
