Roubini and Birinyi on the Market
Posted by Larry Doyle on March 26, 2009 8:42 AM |
I always keep a close ear for the market insights of any of our Economic All-Stars. Highly proclaimed NYU professor and economist Nouriel Roubini is decidedly bearish on the state of financial companies, the economy, and the markets. Bloomberg reports, Roubini Says Stocks Will Drop as Banks Go Belly Up.
Laszlo Birinyi is more tempered in his assessment but believes the market has come too far, too fast and is subject to some pullbacks. Please remember that we saw a market bottom in the S&P 500 at the 666 level (pretty scary, eh) on Friday March 6. We have moved up 22% in a very short time frame. Birinyi further offers that this market is less geared for long term investors and more for short term traders focused on picking individual stocks.
