The article presents stocks analysis by Andrew Smithers of Smithers & Co. In July 2007, Smithers had told clients that stock prices would fall as credit tightened and corporate share buybacks ended. U.S. stocks are off 37% in 2006 and the index of European stocks is down nearly 50%. He believes shares will fall further over the next six months as profit forecasts disappoint and corporate buyers of stocks switch. He thinks governments are right in their efforts to inject equity into banks.
