I was until so many people started talking up equities: First Roubini, Then Fink, Now Buffett Push Stocks - MarketBeat - WSJ

I'd be a lot more confident if we could please go back to our regular doses of perma-bear media coverage.

Eventually the now 30-year bond bull market will end, and the huge sums in bonds will be released. When that happens, and I do not profess to know when, those dollars will go somewhere.

I'd much rather watch things climb a wall of worry than to see the Europeans turning backflips over Greece. "We lost 70% of our money, but we didn't default!!"

No, no, no, remember that all us Baby Boomers are supposed to sell all our stocks to buy bonds?

The bears can't have it both ways!

Err....wasn't that just after the 2007 GFC? Now you're supposed to hold more stocks to protect against longevity risk and inflation.
