Stocks are nearing a bottom, and a 1325 year-end S&P 500 is still achievable, Birinyi's Jeffrey Rubin says. The chances of a bear market are slim because fundamentals remain strong and double-dips are "very rare." Stocks like Coach (COH), Tiffany's (TIF), Ralph Lauren (RL), Home Depot (HD) or Lowe's (LOW), he says, are growing without the help of stimulus money.

    We wont have a double dip, because thats impossible WHEN YOU ARE ALREADY IN A DEPRESSION.

    The fundamentals remain strong? Clearly he's one of those equity pundits who doesn't look at the credit markets. I thought they all learned their lesson in 2008?

    If double digit unemployment is good fundamentals, then yes the fundamentals are not just good they are brilliant. Get real, when the million people working for the census become free agents, the unemployment right now will feel like a bottom, not the stock market.

    Exactly. Laszlo has been Roubinied, before Nouriel became insignificant..This market has all the makings of a cliff diver. I can't tell you exactly when, but I will tell you the next 1000 points will clearly be to the DOWNSIDE, Laszlo. Please stop putting out such ridiculous commentary, you and Abbey Cohen the day before, your two much to take already. Extreme caution is warranted, let the pros play,and loose their money. Do as they are,get small! Deflation is a mother Franken' futter...This is no game here folks, the next leg down is something we wont be back from anytime soon...

    What a bunch of LIES! Where does the money spent by consumers come from? Extend and pretend has run out of money. Europe is paying the piper. China is reigning in the excess. WHO will the US export to?
