  • US stocks won’t be in a “true bubble” until they’re 100% overpriced.
  • GMO’s 7 year forecast continues to call for poor equity market returns.
  • GMO has an equity weighting that “will be down to about 38%” by October if nothing changes this year.
  • Bonds of all types are much riskier in this environment than many think.
