Program Description:
My theme for 2014 symbolizes the looming Chinese New Year — the Year of the Horse (the one that's breaking out of the gates). I feel like 2014 is going to feel a lot like 2004 and 1994 when the economy surprised to the high side after a prolonged period of unsatisfactory post-recession growth, as reparation of highly leveraged balance sheets delayed, but in the end did not derail, a vigorous expansion. That by no means guarantees a stellar year for the markets because as we saw in 2013 with a softer year for the economy and as for the markets, multiple expansion premised on Fed-induced liquidity can act as a very powerful antidote. Plus a rising bond yield environment will also at some point provide some competition for the yield delivered by the stock market.
