U.S. Stock Market not in a Bubble Yet

In a Bloomberg interview, Roubini said central bank liquidity is not going to the economic recovery but into financial transactions “We are maybe not in bubble territory for the U.S. stock market, but if you look at housing around the world — Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, Israel, Brazil, Hong Kong, Singapore, China — we have frothiness if not outright bubbles in housing markets in many parts of the world,” he said. Also, the tech sector appears vulnerable with start-ups being overvalued based on forward revenue they haven’t even taken in yet. In addition, central bankers face a tough choice between killing off the recovery, or fueling growth at the risk of inflating the next financial crisis.
