The article comments on the undervaluation of U.S. stocks. According to columnist Ken Fisher, Standard&Poor Index companies borrow money at an aftertax average rate of 3.8 percent to buy back their shares, which, on average, are yielding 6.7 percent. Hence, the author mentioned that if the stock market goes down, the private equity firm can mark up its companies and sell them to other companies.
