A rapid recovery in U.S. stock prices after the recent slide may be enough to make many investors who remained bullish feel a little smug. Investors should instead take the emerging markets scare that drove stocks down about 6 percent at the end of January as a warning of more risks to come. Cantor Fitzgerald, for one, said it was considering new hedges at these levels. With few obvious justifications for stocks climbing further, investors are left in the position they were in at the beginning of the year: unsure about the economy and earnings, but facing an environment where few other assets offer the same potential return as the equity market.
