Drive-time radio. Ominous voice: â€śCritical Warning No. 6â€ť again, â€śSomething bigger than the credit crisis of 2008 is headed our way. For most people, it will hit them like a brick wall. It will touch Americans harder and deeper than anything else weâ€™ve seen since the Great Depression.â€ť
But wait. The New York Times tells a different story: â€śAmericans seem to be falling in love with stocks again.â€ť Check the facts: S&P 500 just hit a five-year high. Rallied 13% in 2012. Up 120% since we predicted of a new bull market back in March 2009.
USA Today sees 5 big signs investors are â€ścoming back to stocks.â€ť And yet USA Todayâ€™s Adam Shell asks: â€śWhy does this bull market get no respect?â€ť
Why no respect? Because nobody trusts Wall Street. Banks canâ€™t be trusted. Investors are hopeful, optimistic about the economy. Yes we love the S&Pâ€™s rally. But we know the â€śother shoe will dropâ€ť again.
