'Heftigere correctie dan in februari op komst'


De risico's van de aandelenrally nemen toe en de daling die met de afstraffing van Facebook vorige week is ingezet, zal doorzetten. De verkoop is net begonnen en deze correctie zal de grootste zijn sinds die van februari.

Here are some end-times-worthy predictions going back to the 1970s. Sadly, people made money decisions based on some of these errant forecasts. Time Magazine, September 1974: “A Gallup poll published last month found that 46% of adults feared a depression similar to the classic one of the 1930s.” Yeah, that never happened. Business Week, August, 1979: Cover story, “The Death of Equities.” Here’s a sample from the article: “The old attitude of buying solid stocks as a cornerstone for one’s life savings and retirement has simply disappeared … The death of equities is a near permanent condition.” Just three years later, a roaring bull market got under way. Forbes Magazine, July, 1993: Cover story, “Bearish on America.” Morgan Stanley MS +0.3%’s Barton Biggs advised readers to sell domestic stocks, saying Bill Clinton’s policies were bad for the country. What actually happened: The S&P 500 index delivered a compound return of 18.5% over the next seven years. Business Week, March, 1998: “Year 2000 is a unique and unprecedented event .. the first economic disaster to arrive on schedule.” Whatever happened to that Y2K disaster? It ended up being quite a yawn, didn’t it? Fortune Magazine, September, 1998: Cover story, “The Crash of ’98: Can The U.S. Economy Hold Up?” Fortune columnist Joseph Nocera wrote, “This time it is different. This time the market won’t be so quick to bounce back … Who can look at the world and not conclude that things have changed dramatically?” Um, not so much. Money Magazine, April 2004: “ Apple's AAPL -0.57% share of the worldwide personal-computer market has shrunk to 2 percent from 3.2 percent five years ago … It's unclear what Jobs can do or plans to do to turn around Apple's fortunes.” Yeah, Steve Jobs’ return to Apple didn’t work out well at all, did it?
