By historical standards, the ascent in stocks that began in March 2009 has been stronger and longer than most bull markets, suggesting it’s getting old. Yet the Dow only recently broke above a 13-year range, leading some observers to herald a new, long-lasting upward trend. Monetary policies and many economic indicators look more like early-cycle conditions than the end of an expansion. So how to reconcile these conflicting observations? Michael Santoli will present a discussion of valuation, Fed policy, investor sentiment and where the opportunities and risks reside in a market near all-time highs.
