The U.S stocks are overvalued. The corporate earnings to stock prices are double the ratio than it’s average historical ratio.

Ted distinguishes two effects of the stock market, one being the investors wouldn’t get their dividends back and two alternate asset returns become appealing to investors.
There’s a yield curve in the U.S Treasury. The bond markets have low expectations for the economy in a few years. If a recession happens, the S&P 500 can drop more than 25 percent. According to Ted Bauman, this can happen if there’s a shift in the house with impeachment following it.
