He believes governments will have to come up with an even bigger international rescue, and that the US is facing “multi-year economic stagnation”.
What might that be?

Amazing he is 100% stocks, considering how pessimistic he has been. I'd still like to have him shot.

Plenty. One of the latest is that the S&P 500 will bottom at around 600. He figures earnings will drop to about $60 and the market will trade at a 10x multiple.

I can actually live with that, if that's the down side. That means stocks today are trading at 14x trough earnings.

no one cares about 2008 earnings anymore since everyone knows it's a total lows. the market is trying to find pricing at 2009 - 2010 earnings and we are almost at the end of the psycho selling where everyone is selling to meet margin calls or just because they think the world is ending.

back in the 1970's i'm pretty sure the PE bottomed long after the 1974 low

Historically, are trough multiples usually applied to trough earnings?

think so, go to www.safehaven.com and you'll have to do some searching, but in the last 18 months i read an article there about how we go through PE contractions every few decades and the last one the PE bottomed in the late 1970's or in the 1980 - 1982 bear market. can't remember which.

I've heard other ecomonists (like Rosenberg from Merrill Lynch) predict a 10 PE because other bear markets have contracted to that level, but I don't see why such a low multiple would make sense in an environment where the 10 yr treasury yields < 4%.
