Five biggest market declines and subsequent 5-year periods
* Market downturns are based on the five largest declines in the S&P 500’s value (excluding dividends and/or distributions) with 50% recovery after each decline.
† The return for each of the five years after a low is a 12-month return based on the date of the low. For example, the first year is the 12-month period from 3/9/09 to 3/9/10.
