If you dollar cost averaged + dividends you'd be fine.If you factor in total return including dividends (and just reinvest them)...Jan 1990 to July 2018 is only -13.6% total return, -0.5% annualized.
That's still negative, but it is buying at the peak and then never buying again (except for dividend reinvestment). If you did some buying in the 80s before it blew up, and did some buying during the subsequent 30 years...you'd be coming out ahead. Still poor returns, but ahead.
Diversification I guess?
