Recently Warren Buffet made another of his seemingly aggressive statements about the market:  In a hundred years the Dow will top 1.000.000.  This is actually a no-brainer.  1.000.000. is  an under call.  The way to look at this is to calculate the projected CAGR (Compond Annual Growth Rate). Buffet's statement predicts a CAGR of 3.76%.  A year ago when I published Sacred Chickens, the Holy Grail, and Dow Theory I calculated the CAGR of the Dow for 113 years at 7.87%.  So we can see that Buffet's call is actually very conservative.
