Marc Faber Sees a Big Drop in Stocks Ahead
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index may retreat 20 percent from a 15-month high because stocks are expensive given prospects for economic and profit growth, Marc Faber said.
“The market has become overbought,” Faber, who publishes the Gloom, Boom and Doom report, said in a phone interview from Switzerland. “There isn’t a meaningful improvement in the economy taking place. The economy may disappoint somewhat in the next few months. The statistics that are being published are very questionable. The economy has stabilized, but isn’t really expanding.”
