Another Troubling Sign For Stocks

ImageThe U.S. stock market continues to push along steadily to the upside. Not only are stocks firmly established in a long-term uptrend, but they also appear to have room to continue higher into the near-term. Overall, the performance of the U.S. stock market remains most impressive. Unfortunately, stocks are increasingly traveling this upside path alone, as many other major global markets and asset classes that are highly correlated with stocks have either already ground to a halt if not turned lower beginning as long as two years ago. The longer this disconnect lasts and the more stocks move higher by themselves, the greater the probability that U.S. stocks will finally succumb and fall in line with the rest of the crowd. And one of the latest categories to fall off the upside path is high yield bonds, which is particularly troubling since it is not only among the categories most closely related to U.S. stocks, but it also opens up a tangled web of related issues to consider.
