Ziggy lets be honest - it is more than a "red flag" - it is a bubble and like all bubbles it will burst, people will deploy hell out of it, people will loose a lot of money and life will go on.

Buying bonds today is a playing Russian roulette with no certainty how many chambers are empty. Buying yield form stocks is not quite that bad, but certainly far more risky than is has been in the last twenty or more years.

It is a time, in my view, to either buy the broad market or carefully buy equities without particularly attention to yield. Nothing wrong with buying dividend paying stocks - but buying or selecting stocks based on their dividend is playing into that bubble.
