Some investment managers are having a tougher time finding bargains in the U.S. stock market with the S&P 500 up about 28% so far this year.

We question how sustainable that is and what investors are willing to pay for that type of growth,” said Jim Wright, a financial advisor with Harvest Financial Partners in Paoli, Pa. “While 2012 and 2013 have been very good years for large-cap stocks, valuations are a bit high and we do not find them as attractive today.”Read the full article at fa-mag.com.
