Podcast: Are We in a Stock Market Bubble?

Listen to Charles discuss the outlook for inflation[1] — using Japan as an example — and whether we’re in a stock market bubble with Mike Robertson on Straight Talk Money.

Charles and Mike consider arguments from InvestorPlace‘s Jeff Reeves and Pension Partners’ Michael Gayed.

In a nutshell, Reeves argues that the metrics used to gauge the market’s valuation are dated and that too much emphasis is given to returns data that is too old to be useful. ¬†Jeff also pokes holes in the belief that we are “due” for a correction of 10% or more. ¬†Gayed counters that defensive sectors are leading — which is typical of the late stages of a bull market — and that more cyclical asset classes, such as small-cap equities, have struggled to make new highs.
