Corporate equities as a percentage of total household financial assets (CE) has fluctuated from 10% to 30% since 1945. Ownership percentages between from 15 to 25% are neutral, while readings below 15% and 25% suggest the beginning of under- and over-ownership. CE is 21% through the end of 2016. Experts screaming that stocks are over-owned and ready to to crash because of it are selling more fear than fact.
