USA Today Investment Roundtable: Get over your fear and get back into stocks, say experts

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

Five Wall Street commentators – Abby Joseph Cohen, Bob Doll, David Bianco, Richard Bernstein and Dan Chung – say it’s time for individual investors to shun the perceived safety of bonds – and get over their fear of the U.S. stock market – so they can take advantage of what they predict will be a third straight year of solid gains for stocks in 2011.

“The major theme from USA Today’s 15th annual Investment Roundtable is that the bond market is looking riskier amid signs the economy is gaining traction. The five panelists say stocks, which get a boost from stronger growth, will post better returns than bonds in 2011. They are advising investors, many still leery two years after the financial crisis, to start shifting some investment dollars out of bonds and back into stocks,” reported USA Today.

In the five video clips below, each of the panelists share their specific views. [PduP: Wow, what a bullish bunch! I'm concerned about the timing of some of these recommendations.]

    This is just the paid HYPE before the next downturn. When a major down trend is impending, the major players with lots of intelligence pay these clowns to hype the market so they can unload their shares on the unwashed masses. Good luck and say good-bye to your money if you listen to them, at least if you don’t get out very early when the real underlying (emphasis on the lying) trend is later revealed in the mass media.
