Between May ’08 and Feb ’09, the S&P 500 lost nearly half of its value. Naturally, investors decided that their long term savings were better off in a bank, rather than the stock market.

In the next 5 years that followed this slump, the S&P 500 climbed over 153%! Those who hung on to their investments are up more than 279%, even after the current outbreak sell-off.
