Sometimes you're looking at your retirement account. You're thinking to yourself, "Self? I'm gonna need this money to live on for, like, 30 years. If I'm gonna make an investment, what are some indicators that could help me make that decision?"

We've all had this chat with ourselves thousands of times, right?
