HAS THE RALLY ALREADY EXHAUSTED ITSELF?

HAS THE RALLY ALREADY EXHAUSTED ITSELF?

Dshort has an excellent chart out comparing the road to recovery using the rebounds that occurred following similar bear markets.  Excluding the 1929 data, I’ve used the S&P 500 oil crisis recovery and the tech crash to calculate potential future returns.  Assuming a total recovery of 61% (the average) from the bottom we can expect just 8.2% total returns in the coming 2 years after the incredible 5 month run we’ve already experienced.  That’s a whopping 4% compound annual growth rate.

There is no doubt that the rally off the bottom has been swift and incredible, but now investors have to begin wondering whether or not the stock market is substantially ahead of itself in the near-term?  4% annual returns would certainly imply a very poor risk/reward environment which is in-line with our current thinking.  Two pieces of data are by no means a solid scientific study, but the questions remain: is the stock market ahead of the road to recovery?  Is it different this time?

 HAS THE RALLY ALREADY EXHAUSTED ITSELF?

Unfortunately, taking the long-term perspective comes to much the same conclusions.  As I’ve mentioned before, one of the primary problems with bubbles is that the effect can often be as long and drawn out as the cause.   The only reasonable explanations for a v-shaped stock market recovery would be either 1. a miraculously quick de-leveraging & turnaround in the U.S. consumer (which isn’t occurring) or 2. rampant inflation caused by the Federal Reserve.   Unfortunately, the latter is unlikely to occur as borrowing remains extraordinarily low, banks continue to hoard cash and the consumer fails to recover quickly.  The only logical expectation is that this recovery and stock market performance will be similar in terms of performance as all of those bubbles that preceded it:
