As the 2019 markets opened with their strongest bull run in decades, we are already seeing the signs of a new phase, driven primarily by the Fed’s continued, low-rate “accommodation” playbook.
When Powell announced the Fed’s infamous rate “pause” in March, this was yet another pathetic green-light for already beer-goggle-drunk markets to continue their debt-driven climb/party.
Toward this end, companies are back at the dangerous game of borrowing on the cheap to buy back their own stocks.
Thus far, we’ve already seen over $270 billion in stock buy-backs in the early months of 2019.
In essence, 20% of the stock purchases to date are just companies drinking their own debt-spiked “Kool-Aide.”
Such market momentum is as sad as it is dangerous.
Nevertheless, it buys markets some time and a further window to climb a wall of worry.
