Here’s an interesting question. A reader writes:

"I was thinking since the phrase "cult of the bear" is being so widely embraced especially on Real Money,maybe you can start using a counter label that that similarly derides the bulls . . .?"

I like the concept of the counter phrase.  Any ideas as to what they should be called? Here’s my short list:

The Bullish Herd

The Under-performers

Market Cheerleaders

The Hype Brigade

Long & Wrong

The one trick ponies

Happy Talk Squad
