Five market scenarios - Fidelity
This has created a dynamic in which Treasury yields are falling and credit spreads are narrowing, which is creating a further reach for yield—but this time outside the bond market. This phenomenon has led to very strong fund flows into the so-called “bond proxies,” such as low-volatility, high-dividend-paying stocks within the historically defensive consumer staples, utilities, and real estate sectors. Investors seem to be re-valuing these “bond surrogates” less as traditional stocks and more like bonds. In my view, this is where things could bubble over.
Just take a look at the recent post-Brexit move to new highs. Usually, stock rallies are driven by aggressive growth or cyclical stocks (e.g., technology, consumer discretionary stocks), while defensive sectors lag behind. This time it was exactly the opposite, as defensive plays pulled the broader market out of its two-year trading range. Most unusual.
This would be a fundamentally unsustainable rally if it happens, because the revaluation would be driven entirely by a decline in interest rates and in the equity risk premium (the excess return of stocks over Treasuries), as opposed to improved earnings growth. It’s not what sustained bull markets are made of. For now, with rates up a bit in recent weeks, I will assign a low probability to this regime. But it’s not a zero probability, so it’s something we need to keep an eye on.

One Stock That’s Begging For Higher Rates
CME Group, ticker CME, might be the perfect equity proxy for rising rates. Plotted below in black candlesticks, you can see that it trades almost completely in sync with both the 5-year (pink) and 10-year (red) treasury yield indexes. Rising Rates

The single, best way to tell whether stocks are worth it
That’s not enough to justify investing in stocks. Let’s assume investors still demand a spread over bonds of 3.3 points, matching what they’re supposed to be getting today. Now they’ll require future returns not of 5.8%, but 7.3% (that’s the real rate of 2% plus the ERP of 3.3% plus inflation of 2%).

Restoring the ERP to attractive levels will require a sharp drop in company valuations. The Shiller PE would need to fall from 26.3 to 18.9, causing stock prices to drop by 28%. The S&P would look alluring again at around 1,425. Watching the ERP is all about what really matters in investing: ensuring you are well paid for risk. So follow the sovereign of all market metrics.

Any Monkey Can Beat the Market
From 1964 to 2011, the annualized return for the 1,000 stocks used by Research Affiliates was 9.7 percent. The 30 largest companies in the 1000 made up about 40 percent of the capitalization weight, but their return was only 8.6 percent annually. The other 970 stocks made up 60 percent by capitalization weight and their return was 10.5 percent annually. That’s a 0.8 percent per year premium return for smaller stocks over the 1,000 stock universe and a 1.9 percent premium return over the largest stocks.

How Rare: S&P Dividend Yields vs Treasuries | The Big Picture
Last week, Ron Griess of the Chart Store brought to my attention a common misunderstanding about dividend yields.

To begin with, the 10 Year or 30 year for that matter may not be an ideal comparison. The US sovereign debt has as little default risk as an instrument — certainly much less than any equity. Towards that end, a better measure might be comparable corporates — either Moody’s Aaa or Bbb rated corporate bonds.

Note that the charts, which run from 1920 to present, may belie some current assumptions about dividends and Treasuries:

The Market’s 6.66% Plunge: The Devil Is in the Details | Crossing Wall Street
I’m at a loss to comment on the stocks on the Buy List. Except for Ford ($F), I like them all. At this price, Ford isn’t looking so bad either. There hasn’t been one single bit of information that’s come out in the last two weeks that could possible make anyone change their mind on any of the Buy List stocks. The earnings reports were very good, and a few stocks raised their full-year ranges.

CCME: The Biggest Short Squeeze of 2011 - TheStreet
Lastly, I want to talk about how the mind of an investor works. When a stock trades in your direction, you feel good about it and don't think much about it. When a stock trades against you, however, you tend to re-evaluate your investment hypothesis and consider changing your mind. Via Maoxian

My perspective is the following. If CCME goes to $25 and you have 6 million shares short that are all underwater -- are the shorts going to short more when there are no more shares available to short? Or are they going to reconsider their investment hypothesis?

Bernanke encouraging another stock price bubble - The Irish Times - Fri, Feb 04, 2011
A ground-breaking paper co-authored by Prof Vernon Smith and published in 1988 constructed an experimental asset market in which the participants trade a fictional asset with a finite life of 15 periods. Each subject is endowed with cash and shares of the asset and is free to post bid and ask prices to buy and sell shares at will. Each share of the fictional asset pays a random dividend at the end of each trading period and the asset’s terminal value following the last dividend payment is zero
