Thursday’s Factors and Events

The stock market’s astounding surge from the depths of the Great Recession is hitting a major milestone: It’s the longest bull run in modern history.

This surge, which earlier this year turned nine years old, has been going strong for 3,453 days and has surpassed the famed dot-com 1990s rally which ultimately ended with the bursting of the tech bubble in 2000.

Famed investor Benjamin Graham, author of The Intelligent Investor, once said, ”In the short run, the market is a voting machine but in the long run it is a weighing machine,” meaning that voting machines count sentiments or opinions, which can change at any given time. Weighing machines, on the other hand, can measure value more accurately.
