Stock Rally Still Hasn't Lured Average Investors Off Sidelines

Though the market is coming off its best quarter in 13 years, the rally has been accomplished with only sporadic help from the mom-and-pop investors counted on to power the US economy.

I haven't thought about that....They need to run it up long enough to get the lemmings in so they can run them off the cliff. Did CNBS just figure this rally is smoke and mirrors ? damn they're clever.....

QE2 may end in June, but the Feds near zero interest rate policy may continue ad infinitum, or at least until inflation is actually the result of income growth and economic growth instead of monetary policy. Once again money printing/credit creation has been substituted for actual wealth creation. And once again it has led led to massive debt across private and public sectors, as nominal income not only remains flat, but in real terms is contracting at a 2.3% annual rate. True, corporate profits are up and are close to all-time highs as a percentage of GDP, but this does not necessarily reflect a robust economic recovery. Strong control over the balance sheet and cheap labor costs due to wage concessions and layoffs, has resulted in lower unit labor costs and higher productivity. While there has been an extraordinary recovery in corporate profits, top line growth has not been spectacular, and bottom line growth has not led to job creation. When QE2 ends, and the business cycle returns to normal, logic dictates that profits will revert back to their mean, leaving nowhere for valuations to go, but down.
