John Hussman's New Presentation Clearly Explains Why The Stock Market Is Frighteningly Distorted

John Hussman 4

John Hussman of Hussman Funds has maintained a bearish slant toward the market for quite a while.

"I'm  known as somewhere between permabear and prophet of doom," said Hussman as he opened his presentation during Mish Shedlock's Wine Country Conference.

"I'm actually an inordinately optimistic person who actually believes there is virtue in finance," he added.

In his thought-provoking presentation, Hussman very clearly argues that distortions in the financial markets have created an environment with very low prospective returns.

"This fragile equilibrium that we're in because of monetary policy, because of fiscal policy, and because of the combination of yield-seeking plus the apperence of yield through forward operating earnings because profit margins are elevated -- this creates an environment where stock returns prospectively are very low," he says.

"That's really the point of QE," he reiterated. "It creates discomfort as a search for yield."

The Wine Country Conference was hosted by Mike Shedlock of Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis and Sitka Pacific Capital Management to raise funds in the fight against ALS, the disease that took Mish’s wife Joanne.  In total, Mish has raised nearly a half million dollars for the Les Turner ALS Foundation —  please consider making a donation.
