Kass: Market View Remains Negative

“My market view remains negative and I am positioned defensively. Thus far, the market is indifferent to what I have seen as a deterioration in the macroeconomic trends and to rising geopolitical threats. …

“Adding to the fundamental issues (estimated 2015 S&P profit forecasts have consistently dropped from $137/share to $119/share) is that sentiment is elevated (as the bull market in complacency has hit a new high) and many of the most important valuation methodologies are seriously stretched (including Shiller’s CAPE, Buffett’s Market Cap/GDP, etc.) …

“Arguably, Mr. Market is beginning to launch into the giddy phase … Nevertheless, despite the enthusiasm and extraordinary price momentum, I anticipate that my next move will likely be to meaningfully increase my short exposure (but only on a momentum break).”
