Ron Baron Says Stocks Will Double in 10 Years. What’s So Special About That?

Ben Levisohn

10:07 a.m. Ron Baron of Baron Capital was making headlines this morning for proclaiming that the stock market will double in 10 years. The S&P 500 has dropped 0.7% to 2786.17 Friday morning. Plug that into a compound return calculator, and that means the S&P 500 would have to return just over 7% annualize to hit that number.
