Bloomberg (December 6)

2017/ 12/ 07 by jd in Global News

“Every bull market is unique, but the one in China right now looks downright strange. The Shanghai Composite Index has climbed 24 percent from its January 2016 low, and yet a majority of stocks in the benchmark gauge have fallen during the period.” China has become a global outlier. “For all 45 of the other national equity gauges that have climbed at least 20 percent since last January, a majority of index members have recorded gains.”

“Investors are running out of reasons to keep buying U.S. stocks, exposing a growing number of warning signs. The historic calm that enveloped U.S. stocks for much of this year has been upended twice in the past two weeks…. It is too soon to call the end of the eight-year bull market, investors, traders and analysts say, but many agree the indiscriminate optimism that characterized the postelection rally is evaporating.”

“Chinese equities are once again in the cross hairs of short sellers…. The last time bearish bets were so elevated, such pessimism proved well-founded as China’s bull market turned into a $5 trillion rout.”

“Ebullient growth isn’t likely any time soon, but with no recession in sight, equity bears are likely to remain in hibernation.” The 6.5 year bull market in the U.S. still has further to run.

A bull market looks set to lift U.S. stocks in 2011. This will not, however, be a “sustained market drive.” One factor is missing: productivity growth. “Strong bull markets are propelled by long-term productivity growth.” The “bullish 1960s and 1990s” prospered on the back “of solid productivity gains.” In contrast, American worker-productivity is in general decline.
