When Uncle8888 looked at STI ETF fund performance CAGR number and STI ETF chart; he has serious trouble to correlate the two diagrams visually for 8% CAGR over 10 years.

We are saying that beautiful lady is 36-24-36; but at another angle she looked rather flat like airport. Strange!

Anyone expert help to explain? 


  1. I think the 1 3 5 and 10 years are sitting in a pretty sweet spot right now since they are almost at the bottom back then.

  2. Fund performance always only show the best. Hide the rest.

  3. I guess because STI also gives out 2.5-3% dividends which can't be seen from the chart?

  4. CW,

    When I was briefly a "unofficial" Navigator (hated that role), I learnt what it meant when we say "Never trust a statistics we didn't manipulated ourselves."

    That's why I hate powerpoint presentations now - after the amount of BS I dished out. By changing the scale and which data point I decide as index 100, I can make numbers look better or poorer than they really are...


  5. Ha! Ha!
    i think often Statistics & Politics are fraternal twins if not identical twins.
