Well, the BUZZ has died down about how the economy is slowing its prior quick rate of descent. Guess because we’ve started seeing more bad economic data pop up or because the conversation has moved on. But some investors have decided an end to the economic collapse is out there, just over the horizon, so they are shifting into cyclical stocks now as a result. One can see this money rotating out of defensive sectors such as medical care, consumer staples and even gold. You know the concept, buying in advance of a recession’s end since history shows stocks rise roughly six months before the economy turns up. But if we indeed are stuck with a very mild even “anemic” economic recovery, as many figure, then stocks could also soon level off to mirror that trend as well. That is if the economic and earnings data don’t start sinking fast once again showing the economy is still sinking. For example, last Friday it was reported that the ISM Non-Manufacturing Index which now measures almost 90% of America’s economy - America now being a service oriented economy instead of a manufacturing economy - fell faster in March than in February somewhat debunking the idea that the economy has stabilized. Schwartz View: Yes, there is the possibility that economy-wise we are going to V- back up because sharp moves, in whatever areas of endeavor, are generally followed by responding sharp moves back up. We’re seeing that now in the stock market but after this bounce is over, I agree with the camp forecasting an anemic slow economic recovery.
