    • Goldman is dealing with some upset clients after its overvaluation call on the S&P 500 last week.
    • "Most client responses attempted to justify personal expectations for continued multiple expansion in 2014 ...  The low interest rate backdrop was the most common client justification for continued P/E expansion." Goldman, however, looks at P/E's vs. real rates over time and finds today's pricey no matter the rate environment.
    • "Many on the buy-side expect price gains of 10% to 20% this year ... the fact remains that market has rarely traded at a higher P/E outside of the tech bubble, or coming out of recessions when EPS were extremely low."

    • On January 24th the reverse split will occur, artificially decreasing the number of shares outstanding and increasing the price per share for the ETFs included in the split.
    • Every 4 pre-split shares will result in the receipt of 1 post-split share and will be priced at 4 times the price of 1 pre-split share.
    • The majority of the effected funds feature short term equity strategies and have underperformed during the recent economic upturn.
    • ETFs undergoing a 1-for-4 reverse split on Jan 24th: EWV, EPV, QID, SQQQ, SMDD, SJH, SBB, SIJ, FXP, MZZ, TWM, SDD, SKK, AGQ, UVXY, SPXU,
