It is funny how some words can make all the difference...

"It is one of the cheapest markets I have seen,"


"current stock market is the cheapest he's ever seen compared to bonds"

As soon you put "compared to bonds", the meaning changes completely.

...Jeremy Siegel, the eternal optimist

Very accurately and succinctly postulated, Superguru. One the Fed begins tightening (if ever...), then perhaps we will see a massacre in the bond markets in general, but more specifically in the US Treasury notes and bills.

I do agree with one point of from the distinguished Professor: once tightening does beging, we will most likely see a heavy sell off in both Treasurys and equities, but that equities should rebound quite quickly.

Thanks for the thought provoking postulation.

For Jeremy, the sun is ALWAYS shining.

Below is a re-paste of my last note on gurufocus with a topic of the same headline.


_the part worth repeating is this.... Siegel was advocating 90% stocks when much the smart money - Buffett, Rodriguez, Klarman, et. al. - - had either lots of cash or were positioning themselves for a bear market.)

As for that other guy. He should quit the business before somebody gets hurt.
