Proof We’re In A Stock Market Bubble

From Yahoo Finance: ‘No bubble troubles’ in stocks, Goldman says Goldman Sachs (GS) thinks talk of financial bubbles is misguided, and the firm is encouraging its wealthy clients to keep their money in relatively expensive sectors such as U.S. technology stocks and high-yield bonds. “Stay fully invested-we don’t have bubble troubles yet,” Sharmin Mossavar-Rahmani, chief […]
