UPDATE: 'Young and dumb' traders have created a 'total nightmare' in the stock market, fund manager warns

At 40 times earnings, there is a 0% chance that Microsoft stock will produce wealth for someone over the next 10 years to meet their needs, Cole Smead says

That's Cole Smead, president of Smead Capital Management, explaining in a CNBC interview on Thursday (https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/15/smead-nightmare-us-stock-valuations-driven-by-young-dumb-investors.html) how "young, dumb" investors have created a "total nightmare" in the current climate.

Smead went on to say that these nosebleed valuation levels are an example of a "stock market failure" at the hands of these inexperienced millennials who have gotten lured in to taking oversized risks in equities for the first time in their lives.

"They are buying bullish call options that expire inside two weeks. There was ($500 billion) of bullish call options bought in a four-week stretch by small retail traders," Smead said. "In '99 it was $100 billion, in '07, it was $100 billion."

In other words, we've reached next-level buying fever in U.S. stocks. When it turns, it could get ugly, according to Smead, who said that despite the accommodative monetary policy, the Federal Reserve ultimately "can't save a stock market" -- especially one that's this top heavy.

Smead told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published last week (https://www.wsj.com/articles/global-stock-markets-dow-update-10-08-2020-11602147628) that, "We spend half our time right now telling people how dangerous things are."

It's not just the younger generations fault, however. Smead says baby boomers certainly deserve some of the blame for riding "the index to a fault" and paying unrealistic premiums for the likes of longtime winners such as Costco (COST) and Microsoft (MSFT) .

"Microsoft is a wonderful company," he told CNBC. "But at 40 times earnings, there is a 0% chance of that producing wealth for someone over the next 10 years that will meet their needs."

Here's a clip from the interview:

Meanwhile, stocks were bouncing off the lows of the trading session, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average , Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 were all still firmly in the red by Thursday afternoon.
