Kass: Rally Through Summer?

Stocks in this article: AIG SPY

This blog post originally appeared on RealMoney Silver on March 18 at 7:36 a.m. EDT.

From my perch, the American International Group (AIG) bonus outcry and today's House Capital Markets Subcommittee hearings are simply a sideshow to the main event -- namely that we have likely seen a significant and maybe even a generational low in the U.S. stock market.

How to seek alpha in a bull market was the message I tried to communicate on CNBC's "The Kudlow Report" last night.

I continue to view the March 5 low as the "Nouriel Roubini stock market bottom," the day the grizzly NYU Professor pronounced a 600 or lower S&P 500 price objective during his worldwide lecture tour.

A confluence of negative sentiment, historically low equity valuations, a noticeable deceleration in the rate of decline of industrial production and a strongly positive-leaning set of market internals have conspired to produce a combustion in the world's stock markets that is likely to be sustained through the summer.

Here is the tape of last night's show.

Tactically, I wouldn't expect the market to continue its straight up move as it has done over the past week. Nor would I anticipate a correction to anything near the Nouriel Roubini stock market bottom low of March 5, 2009. As I displayed earlier this week, below is a chart of my specific expectations for the S&P 500, using the SPDRs (SPY), through the middle of the summer 2009.

SPDR Trust (SPY) -- Expectations

Most have been caught flatfooted in the face of the market's rip, and it is hard to find anyone who believes that the rally is a prelude to a sustainable advance.
