Watch Interest, Earnings

Many investors are wondering why stocks continue to move higher even as the economic picture looks weak.

To understand this, investors need to understand the thinking of professional money managers, who account for 93 percent of the volume of the stock market.

They control the ups and downs of the market that we observe every day. Currently, the consensus among money managers is that stocks are 2.5 times more attractive than bonds.

This position is based on the assumption that, by their calculation, stocks are 15 percent undervalued based on expected earnings over the next year. Bonds, on the other hand, are 20 percent overvalued.

However, if interest rates start to rise and earnings growth slows , the undervaluation of stocks could quickly reverse, and we could see a major sell-off in the stock market.

So be happy that stocks are going higher today, but keep a close eye on earnings and interest rates. They’re your friend today, but tomorrow they might be your enemy.
