Although we think a consolidation phase is likely before further advances, we remain positively disposed to equities. We further believe that positive economic data should start to materialize in the November timeframe. In the meantime, earnings downgrades are slowing and excess liquidity is supportive. We observe that long-term positioning is still cautious relative to sentiment and overall risk appetite is still below its norm which is also a positive. Lastly, synchronized quantitative easing by year-end should drive up inflation expectations to the benefit of equity multiples.
