Have you checked your 401k or brokerage statements lately? If you haven’t, you’re almost guaranteed to smile. We’re in the middle of one of the best and longest bull markets in history. Since the depths of the crisis, stocks have continued to reach record highs and, so far, 2018 is shaping up to be another banner year. But with such big-time gains already in the tank, there’s a lot of uncertainty in the air.
Many pundits are asking when the next shoe is going to drop.
However, according to BlackRock, that bear might not start anytime soon. There are plenty of positives that could keep the stocks’ streak alive for quite some time. That means there’s still time for investors to load up on risk assets before the bear does finally start to growl.
