The Daily Briefing For September 20th Sees Uber Bull Change His Viewpoint


Michael Hartnett, chief investment strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is a must read and a must follow if you can get his research. One of our readers introduced me to Hartnett's writing several years ago and I am better investor because of it. Why?

Hartnett thinks outside the box and is quantitative which is how I think. So when Hartnett changes his tune it is important to listen. CNBC did a good job this morning of highlighting his latest update. This is must read.

Harnett Reviewed

The main premise is that The "Great Bull" market is over as economic growth becomes less certain, interest rates rise and debt becomes an overhang. Never a good combination. It is why being a stock picker will be even more important as time progresses.
