Equity ownership is the best path to capital appreciation over the long-term. As an asset class, equities represent ownership in productive entities and a claim on their future stream of cash flow/earnings. Owning stocks is the best way for investors to capture the growth of the world's economy in the form of shareholder returns.
Selection of equities is best done by focusing on company fundamentals. Companies that consistently generate economic value are the best creators of shareholder value and growth of capital in the long-term, regardless of where a company is based or does business. In today’s markets, fundamental analysis that transcends the prevailing noise and short-termism is more important and relevant than ever.
