Fairness danger premium enticing
At the moment, the fairness danger premium or the inventory earnings yield relative to bond yields is at a optimistic 2.9%.

So, though we have now had a rally of about 80% within the S&P 500 from final 12 months’s low, there’s nonetheless ample scope for additional beneficial properties primarily based on the historic precedent.”
Time for worth inventory purchasing
