This week will mark five long years since the S&P 500 reached its all-time peak on October 9, 2007.

We see four key supports that make it unlikely that stocks will follow the pattern of another multiyear
trip back to the bottom of the 15-year range: earnings, dividends, valuations, and the economy.
