Article: The Bull Market is Here to Stay

Here is an article from Yahoo that seemed interesting.

The link to the article is titled, "The Bull Market is Here to Stay."

I don't know how good of a predictor this article really is, but it seems to bring some points that are worth digesting:
  1. Improving Earnings
  2. Shipping Stocks Surge
  3. America is Using Plastic (Credit Cards) Again
  4. Inflation is Rising a Little
  5. Manufacturing is Mending (Somewhat)
  6. Improving Job Market
  7. Rising Stock Prices
  8. Strong 4th Quarter GDP
  9. Improving 2011 GDP Outlook
Even the article admits that you should do your own research, but it seems to provide good footing for someone trying to understand our upcoming economy.

Let's hope that the article is closer to being right than wrong!
