    Default Will a Weak Economy Derail the Bull Market?

    The Nasdaq last week finally hit an all-time high, surpassing the 5,000 level achieved 15 years ago in March 2000. It took much longer for the Nasdaq to hit record highs than the Dow or the S&P 500 due to the dot-com frenzy in 2000 that sent the technology-heavy Nasdaq soaring.

    The Nasdaq has nearly quadrupled in six years at a time when the Cassandras were warning of another collapse. How wrong they were! There is a big difference between the Nasdaq of 2000 and today. Back then, the high-tech stock index was selling at 175 times earnings. Today, it is selling for 30 times earnings.
