SeekingAlpha.com comment Feb 3, 2018: "... there is a massive..massive amount of global institutional money on the sidelines that could not place a position because the market was too strong. U.S. M1 is up 11.8% from a year ago. This is enormously bullish. The p/e is 20x forecasted earnings. The only times the forecasted earnings fail is when monetary policy is the opposite of the forecast. That is not the case today. The BAA corporate bond is 4.34%...4.34%.
