Ron Baron is a stock investor who founded Baron Capital Group Inc. which markets the Baron Funds.

He suggested that after almost 11 years of stock markets going nowhere we are setting up for a run similar to what we had from the early 80s through to 2000. He compared the current situation to the period from 1967 to 1980 when the Dow went exactly nowhere.

Baron made the point of how earnings for S&P companies had doubled over the past 10 years while stock prices have not increased.

His second point was that high frequency trading which has been blamed for much of the recent volatility offers a great opportunity for investors.

Here is the video of Baron. We thought you should see this, enjoy.
