The social gathering’s over on Wall Road because the inventory market’s large run-up since 2009 has now become a “absolutely fledged epic bubble,” billionaire investor Jeremy Grantham mentioned.

The S&P 500 has skyrocketed almost 450% since its monetary disaster closing low on March 9, 2009, reaching ranges not earlier than seen.

Between 2009 and 2020, the broader-market index posted annual positive aspects on 9 events, together with three years of returns better than 20%. In 2020, the S&P 500 recovered from a drop of greater than 30% to finish the 12 months up 16.3%, buying and selling at an all-time excessive.
