Is This the Next Bubble to Pop?

Bill Gross, who runs the largest bond fund in the world, recently wrote that he believes future stock returns will be below their historical average. In this segment, the guys discuss why they believe this is yet another sign the bond bubble is about to pop and share why Gross' analysis, if true, makes companies such as Visa, MasterCard, and Expeditors International of Washington more attractive to investors.

    You guys kind of missed the point of what Bill Gross wrote by focusing on stocks vs. bonds. That long-term bond returns will likely be atrocious from this point on is not a counterargument to someone's assertion that stock returns will be mediocre by historical standards. Neither is the notion that stockpicking can produce excess returns.
