Into the teeth of the next bear [-0.01]

Posted on May 9, 2017, 12:29 p.m. by The Reformed Broker @ [source]

The last time the US stock market (S&P 500) registered a peak-to-trough decline of 20% was in October 2011. We had another bear market beneath the surface from 2014 through the mid-point of 2016, in which the median S&P 500 stock had lost 25% while small caps and international stocks fared much worse, but it didn’t exactly ding the major averages quite badly enough to count as an “official” bear.

Tepid economic growth in the first quarter is on track to revive in Q2, according to estimates from several sources.

Among the more bullish estimates at the moment is the Atlanta Fed’s GDPNow model, which is projecting a dramatic acceleration in growth to 4.2% for Q2 (as of May 4) — far above the stall-speed gain of just 0.7% reported by the Bureau of Economic Analysis for Q1.
