"If you build a better mousetrap, people will buy it. Company stocks represent the best value now for available capital."
"The stock market is being artificially supported by a weak dollar. Foreign buyers can buy our stocks at a discount when adjusted for the currency."
"Unprecedented liquidity is causing the market to soar. Stagflation will bring it crashing down."
-- Bill K., New York
"The stock market is being driven almost entirely by yen-financed buying, and behaves as if it is now a policy tool being used to counter the impact of an exhausted real estate bubble.
-- Michael G., New York
"With unemployment at a low, I think Americans who are planning for the future are pouring billions of dollars into the market through their 401(k)'s, IRA's and Keogh's."
-- Dick H., New Jersey
"The cyclical slump in the real estate sector is a driving force to the rally in the stock market."
-- Ed S., California
"Today, there are more people investing into our global economy compared to recent years which is the driving force for our rising stock markets. Until something comes along that places fear into investors, such as inflation, a continued weak dollar around the globe or massive lay-offs, the markets will perform well for every investor who wants to grow their portfolio."
-- Jack, North Carolina
"I believe that the stock market is being driven by such large gains in the real estate market (which is slowing down). The economy has always done better when real estate/new construction has done well. New construction has such a large "spill over" effect in so many areas. Just like anything, what goes up must come down."
