If You Invest in Stocks, Ben Bernanke Is Your Friend

If you invest in stocks, Ben Bernanke is your bestest friend.  Pay cash for your stock purchases?  Do not use margin to finance your investment portfolio?  Think you are not leveraged? 


Perhaps it’s time to rethink that position.  Or at least take into consideration what is going to happen when Ben stops playing the QE game.
