Roubini Is Bullish on Stocks

Roubini is predicting an uptick in stock prices over the next two years as the Federal Reserve continues its stimulus efforts. But buyer beware, Dr. Doom says, because a day of reckoning is lurking at the end of the two-year horizon.
The Fed, he said, is creating the same problems that led to the financial crisis in 2008 by keeping rates near zero. "They are creating massive fraud," Roubini said during a panel at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles, Calif. Monday.
He pointed to the junk bond market as one example of a bubble.
"At some point, there's a levitational problem," said Roubini.
When gravity sets in, Roubini says there will not be a recession but a depression.
With slowing global growth, it's impossible to keep stocks and bonds at these valuations. "The global growth scare would imply that commodity prices should be lower, bond yields should be lower, and equities should be lower," he said.- in CNN Money
