How Higher Rates Will Trigger a Stock Exodus

How Higher Rates Will Trigger a Stock Exodus

(New York)

If you are worried that much higher rates will cause an exodus from the stock market, you are not alone. Many advisors across the country are closely watching the markets to see signs of a mass departure. The big worry is that even three-year Treasury bills now have yields which exceed the dividend yield of the S&P 500. So while for the last several years the theme was "there is no alternative", now there are some very good ones, which could scuttle the market.

FINSUM : The good news here is that the so-called "Great Rotation" into stocks never really materialized, so there is not going to be a great rotation the other way, or at least everyone hopes so.
