Bulletin with Newsweek;9/16/2003, Vol. 121 Issue 6390, p65
The article presents information on stock market performance in the U.S., as of September 16, 2003. Stocks have risen by an average of 20% since Iraq war lows in March 2003, meaning they are climbing at an annualised rate of nearly 50%, a stellar pace that's clearly unsustainable for long. Chief strategist of Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. Richard Bernstein, says low interest rates are causing a reflation of the stock bubble, like the one that eventually gave us the tech wreck in 2000. In fact, it is technology stocks that are again leading the way.
