|BARCLAYS: Nobody thinks stocks will go up but they will
The world's stock markets have been on a wild ride recently, driven down by fears that the Chinese bubble will burst and take global growth with it.
But what's really changed since the start of this year to make shares worth less than before?
Nothing, according to analysts at Barclays — apart from a general feeling among investors that stocks aren't where it's at anymore.
"We think the 10.2% decline in global equities since 21st May has more to do with a shift in sentiment towards the asset class rather than a substantial change in fundamentals," said Ian Scott and his team at Barclays in a note today.
They've been counting up all the different bulls (analysts who think stocks will go up) and bears (analysts who think stocks will go down) and found the level of optimism is the lowest since the end of 2012.
But before you rush out and sell your portfolio of shares, the analysts say that this indicator often means stocks are going higher (emphasis ours):
Our favourite measure now signals a degree of bearishness that, at least since the Financial Crisis, has consistently seen the market higher on a 6-month view.
Outside the US, and especially in Continental Europe, we believe equities offer both value and economic and profit cycles at very different stages from the extended US cycle.
If anything, this shows just how effective central banks have been in propping up shares with cheap money policies since 2009. No matter how many people over the past few years thought stocks would fall, they've always done the opposite.

|Barclays Seeks Japan Research Edge
Barclays plans to add about six analysts in Japan in the next three years to bolster coverage, the equity research chief said. Yet the bigger task is to add the kind of creative twist to research that clients can’t get elsewhere.
“The challenge is not to widen coverage, it’s to dig deeper and provide insightful analysis that can be of use to clients,” Hashimoto said. Barclays ranks as the third-best overseas provider of equity research in Japan this year, according to a Nikkei Veritas survey.

|A Property crash much greater than that seen in 2008 which is very likely as landlords sell up could effect the bank shares, 50p was reached in 2008 but things are very different this time, Barclays exposure to the uk prop mkt is not that great and the price/loan ratio much better. Capital ratios are improved. If a worldwide crash in stock mkts occurs then £1.50 possible but money will flow into cash savings from other assets with cheap money likely for several yrs, although that hasn't helped Japan who have seen over 20yrs decline. Of course the banks are worthless if we got a run on the banks. Back to prop we have too many let property in this country on borrowed money, the govt has been worried about this as recipe for hyper price inflation, increased sensitivity to int rates and property crashes effecting the broader economy so getting back a sensible balance won't be a bad thing. I have recently sold two properties (unencumbered) because the prices obtained have risen out of all logic outstripping benefit of rents with increased blue tape which is due to get worse on what is coming! (The reason Quantitive Easing) Interest rates need to rise to slow the property mkt, that's a given and govt thro taxation and Bof E with int rates want this this yr and will happen whatever the economy imo. End of QE, higher taxes, A tax on second homes is planned and a cap on rents being discussed at ministerial level. Govt needs more cash, landlords easy prey. Where govt starts regulating is also just the start of the end of the good days for pvte landlords and the thumb screws will be turned yr after yr. I predict property falls early next yr through to 2020. For many landlords with big mtges will mean financial ruin but the flip side is my kids will be able to buy a place.||big7ime|
