Marc Faber : Stocks and Silver Will Fall Sharply In May

Marc Faber author publisher and editor of The Gloom Boom and Doom report has just released his latest issue of the Gloom, Boom, and Doom Report where he discussed his outlook for the stock market, gold, emerging markets, and other financial topics. Here are a few highlights from the report:
Via The Daily Crux:

The markets are due for a correction and the technicals point to a weak market, Faber tells Wall Street Pit. In particular, he points to the decline in new 52-week highs as evidence of an unhealthy internal market.

Right now, Faber advises investors determined to buy stocks to stay away from cyclicals, tech stocks, and banks, sticking with safer plays such as consumer staples.

Faber, publisher of The Gloom, Boom and Doom report, likes gold as a long-term investment.

He’s more cautious when it comes to silver because of its recent runup in the price, and expects a 20-percent-plus correction in the metals complex because the inflation trade has become too crowded.

Faber says copper and the S&P 500 are highly correlated, and finds he fact that the stock index reached a new high while the metal didn’t is another signal that stocks could follow commodities lower in the short-term.

Faber says the U.S. housing market has another 10 percent to fall, but valuations are now attractive and housing hasn’t been this cheap since the early 1980s. In a serious inflation environment, Faber would rather own housing than paper dollars.
