Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I hope most folks understand that this uptick in corporate profits is due to the change in the tax code, and not real demand. This rise in the market and in the economic indicators is artificial, its not coming from real demand. to much consumer debt not enough savings. Am I a bear? no! History has shown the natural tendency is for the markets to rise. But I am no bull at these levels, I remain neutral and don't expect much at all from the equity markets for some time. I can, and will wait for a buying opportunity in equities. The news is always the best near the top.
