The U.S. stock market’s rally, punctuated by new records all the time, won’t continue forever. But its strength and longevity are remarkable when economic growth is merely OK, as opposed to spectacular. Rising economies throughout much of the world and good corporate profit growth are factors. But as Raul Elizalde, president of Path Financial in Sarasota, Fla., points out, the shrinkage of available shares has an outsized influence:
When a stock pays a dividend rate higher than the interest at which the company can borrow money, it makes sense for that company to issue debt and buy back its own stock.
This is exactly what happened as interest rates fell to historic lows. We believe that the retirement of equities is a key factor in the stock market rally, making them look expensive when compared to traditional measures of value, but not when considering their shrinking supply.
