    00:00 Prediction for "very good rally" for stocks
    02:07 Investment strategy: Ford, GM, GE, ETFs
  2. Nicely 'uncorrelated' and 'diversified' bets by a long-only manager. I'll go all in :cool:

    Would you like me to give 100 other predictions in which Mr. Clark was absolutely wrong?

    Here's a sample that can be found on their website on the investment reports posted in pdf formats.

    From First Quarter 2008 report:

    "Home builder stocks, as measured by
    the home builder exchange traded fund (ETF), peaked
    May 22, 2007 and had declined by 55% into January of
    2008. It appears that the ETF might have bottomed at
    that point because it has rallied by 30% since that low."

    "...the market was undervalued by
    45% on the Fed’s valuation model and that the undervaluation
    would likely put a floor under the market and
    prevent a drastic decline. Well that model now shows
    the market to be 50.6% undervalued which is more undervalued than at the bottom of the bear market of
    2000-02. Again, I believe that this will prevent any
    kind of major further decline."

    "Is there any chance for this year to even be slightly
    positive? Yes, I believe there is a very good chance!
    Let me explain! I believe that the stock market made a
    panic low on January 22nd."

    :p :p

    Who would have though that?

    Somebody who makes his money from customers buying stocks suggesting that 'buying on weakness' is the thing to do..........

    A Long/Short and Short Fund Manager , Kass:


    Despite a not-so-surprising selloff yesterday, the stock market's performance, by nearly any measure, for the month of March was impressive.
    At the risk of making a market statement based on one day's performance, equities failed to collapse and staged a reasonably good late-day recovery, which has continued into this morning's futures ramp.

    Anecdotally, the bears came out of hibernation in force throughout Monday on the pages of RealMoney; on CNBC, with the possible exception of Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on "Mad Money"; and in three meetings I had with fund of funds managers in my office yesterday, who, respectively, forecast new lows for the S&P 500 of 500, 550 and 600.

    The fact is that few, if any, believe a sustainable market rise is on the horizon. Rather, the almost universal view is that the rally from the March low was a classical bear market rally.

    I respectfully demur and have taken the variant view that the March low was of major significance, likely a generational low.

    Tactically, I covered my trading shorts from Thursday into yesterday afternoon's downturn.

    I continue to believe that, after a shallow pullback (which we might have already witnessed), the market is poised for a saw-toothed advance into the summer to 1,050 on the S&P, which is far in excess of even the more optimistic market participants' expectations.
