- In a note which would have been better-timed before the 6%-plus rally of the past few sessions, Citi strategists say the global bull market is aging, but not finished, and see a 20% gain between now and year-end 2016.
- Not denying that global earnings aren't going to look good, Citi says stocks have already priced in this weakness.
- Favored regions are those where QE is still going on: Europe ex-U.K., and Japan.

- Not necessarily a bear on American stocks, the global chief investment strategist suggests investors tamp down their return expectations given the rich values, and instead move a little money into cheaper international names.
- “Investment professionals advocate diversification, but not everyone follows it. And U.S. dollar-based investors are structurally overweight in stocks. Right now it is a timely moment to reduce their allocation."
- Much of the appreciation in U.S. stocks over the past few years, he says, is due to multiple expansion, rather than earnings growth.

- ETF inflows year-to-date of $73.7B topped $67.9B from the same period one year ago, according to Credit Suisse, with Vanguard being the owner of four of this year's five best-sellers: The FTSE Developed Markets ETF (VEA), the REIT ETF (VNQ), the S&P 500 ETF (VOO), and the FTSE Europe ETF (VGK) each picked up at least $3.3B in inflows. Also in the top five is SSgA's Energy Select SPDR (XLE) with $3.2B.
- This year's overall numbers aren't as relatively impressive when taking gold out of the equation, as $25B exited the SPDR Gold Trust one year ago, while flows this year have been relatively flat.
