Bill Gross at Pimco said:

  • Stocks and bonds will return less than 5 percent in 2013 due to a sluggish economy as the effect of Fed stimulus diminishes
  • Structural headwinds lower real GDP to below 2 percent in the US and other developed nations.
  • Bernanke is not Rumpelstiltskin and can only spin straw into gold for so long.
  • Globalization, technological and demographic changes will restrict growth, so investors should invest in commodities like oil and gold, US inflation-protected bonds, high-quality munis and non-dollar emerging market stocks.
