is only Deginning to recover Though eco nomically speaking we are on the way back we are far from the top Butnot in Wall Street here were mighty close to the top What pushed the market so high sosuddenly First is the be lief of the professional investor that the recession has indeed bottomed out and that the econo my is on its way uphill Second is the disenchantment of agreai many investors with the bone market where recent disappoint ing experiences have caused an exodus over to the securities market Third is the accumula tion of increasingly large sums from mutual funds investmen trusts and pensions MANY TOP Wall Streeters dis tressed at the sudden ascent into rarefied air are concerned not so much about the altitude as about he prospects of a rapid descent This tremendously

sent from Municipal Court to the Slate Motor Vehicle Registration Division the five point offense will go on Browns stock des ined to see some reaction before too long Some experts think th market is ripe for a selloff The can be wrong Yet its a puzzling market I the first six months ofthe yea when business hitting th skids and many companies were publishing nothing but red fig ures the market bulled right along Among industry groups chemi cal products companies reported earnings down 32 per cent from last Automobile parts man ufacturers watched their net prof its slide 52 per cent while mining and quarrying companies showed an earnings decline averaging 41 per cent IN SPITE OF THIS the indus trial average kept climbing steadily through this period of woeful earnings reports In late September of 1957 the industrials sold off sharply a drop of 17 points in the average in two days It was the selloff that signalled the recent reces sion Throughout this year the market in general has displayed a steady rise leading some ana lysts to predict a correction Signs of tightening credit help to enforce the belief of Wall Streeters who see a dip ahead in market prices Last week for ex ample big banks began boosting their prime rates from 314 per cent to 4 per cent EARLY IN 1958 a number of big traders took positions in com mon stocks and today as well as in the coming weeks they are in a position to sell and take long term capital gains If the analysts predicting a sell off prove to be wrong the two main factors which will work against them are brighter busi ness prospects and the spectre of inflation More money is coming into the market through pension funds and other sources Many of the money managers envisage invest ment in common stocks as thei best hedge against inflation Thus two sets of forces will b set into action in the weeks ant months ahead One is bearish anc the other is bullish The bearishness where it ex ists applies to the nearterm market There is
