By James Altucher:
People have called me a “perma-bull” forever. Mish Shedlock called me a “wacko”. Zerohedge has called me insane. Nouriel Roubini has laughed in my face. My daughters still quote Don Luskin when he was on CNBC shaking his head and saying, “James, James, James…” while laughing after I said the market was going to hit new highs.
Well, the market has hit new highs. That’s ok for those guys. I’m sure they all do well on their newsletters. I have no newsletter. I only invest with my own money. I live and die in the markets and I don’t depend on anyone else.
Is there a reason to change my mind? Not really. Eventually, the market will be higher than it is now.
But for the first time in a long time, I’m not a super bull on the overall market (although I like certain smaller stocks, see below).
