    Here’s why stock investors should hope that corporate earnings growth shrinks

    Many investors find it surprising that, in the wake of the fastest growth rate in corporate profits in many years, the U.S. stock market is struggling. Over the past nine decades, the stock market on average has hardly produced any gain in calendar quarters in which year-over-year earnings growth is as strong as it is currently. GAAP earnings per share for the S&P 500 (^GSPC) are projected to be 36.7% higher than the comparable quarter of a year ago, according to Standard & Poor’s. That compares to an average of just 5.9% average annual growth since the late 1980s.
