Wall Street’s Most Accurate Analyst: “Today’s Bear Market Ends In October With The S&P At 3,000”

Two weeks ago, just when everyone thought that he couldn’t turn any more bearish, BofA’s chief investment strategist Michael Hartnett, Wall Street’s biggest bear who is by implication has also emerged as the most accurate sellside analyst (the average S&P price target of his peers is still around 4,700), stunned everyone when he told readers that while the mood on the street was already dismal, relaying the the Heard on the Street line was “I’m so bearish, and even I’m miserable“, he warned that even though everyone was bearish, redemptions were just starting, and the real selling was only just beginning.

One week later – and much to the embarrassment of JPM’s in house permabull who at the same time said to take the other side of the trade and to buy stocks – Hartnett was again been proven right, with the S&P tumbling and the Nasdaq suffering its worst month since the Lehman bankruptcy. Hartnett also correctly warned that the closer we got to the 4,000 “strange attractor” level, the more aggressive the selling would become (as we discussed in “Hartnett Turns Apocalyptic, Says Carnage To Accelerate With “Max Pain” And “Exit” Waiting Below 4,000“)
