Apocalypse aficionado Marc Faber was on CNBC today talking about his house on the beach in Vietnam, among other things. Key points included:

  • A stronger dollar will be positive for equities based on historical market data.
  • The U.S. market will outperform emerging markets for the first half of 2010.
  • Stocks and associated indices may have 10—20% correction, followed by another rally.
  • The worst thing you can do for a long-term buy is purchase Treasuries.
  • The private sector is de-leveraging while the government levers up. This process is expected to continue.
