Disastrous Risk/Reward In Stocks
D. Schrottenbaum, Chief Investment Office Austrian private bank: 
58 companies in the S&P500 have announced buyback suspensions – so far. That’s roughly $225 billion of support or a third of 2019 executions that won‘t be there once this rally fades. Fair to say risk/reward not great here?…

No Need To Hedge?
D. Schrottenbaum, Chief Investment Office Austrian private bank, continues:  Nasdaq roughly 10% below ATH, flat YTD and 30% above lows from 16 sessions ago. Oh, and some 20 million Americans lost their jobs. Fair to say risk/reward is not great here? 

Hedges being thrown out the window…(see below).

Feel The Need To Hedge Against A Stock Market Decline

Sven Henrich:
  Investors just chased stocks into a 131.1% market cap to GDP valuation during the largest economic crisis of our lifetimes. And that GDP denominator will be shrinking. So the real valuation is much higher. Markets remain historically vastly overvalued. (See below).
