TUESDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The global bull market is thriving and is into its eighth year of gains. Now, stocks are pricey, but the rally is showing no signs of slowing down.
Stocks could reach a cap if this quarter’s earnings reports come in under expectations or if the world’s economy touches a period of slow growth.
Thanks to forecasts of double digit earnings growth, stock’s valuations may not be too bloated, given 2016’s earnings came in at just 2%.
The US rally has outpaced those of Europe and other developed nations.
Meanwhile, volatility remains at record lows. Traditionally, high returns are associated with high levels of volatility. Meaning investors have reaped the values of both record highs without coming into bear markets and getting knocked out of their positions. The biggest sell-off for the first half of 2017 was just 2.8% (the second smallest pullback on record)
