It's true that the stock market will probably remain bullish for sometime the US economy is still in the red. Large companies are making profits but a lot of that money is made overseas. That money shows up on their books and is reflected in the stock market. it still remains that here at home companies are doing more with less.They are not expanding and hiring new workers; and to be sure, when Obamacare kicks in it will get worse. Also, the stock market is helped by investors who are parking their money in the market long term as a hedge against rising taxes.
