While rising inflation expectations were the immediate cause of the plunge in U.S. stocks, another force also played a role in their second-longest weekly decline since last May: overvaluation.
As earnings growth expectations for the S&P 500 grow increasingly weak, stocks are valued near higher levels than they have been in nearly 30 years, putting them at risk of a sharp downside.
The stock market bubble could pop at any time as inflation further fuels the Fed’s determination to aggressively raise interest rates.
The S&P 500 accumulated a 2.7% decline last week, extending its downside trend and potentially erasing all of its 2023 gains in the aftermath.
