Welcome to Episode #327 of the Zacks Market Edge Podcast.

This week, Tracey is joined by Zacks Chief Equity Strategist, John Blank, to talk about what is happening in the US economy and with the summer stock rally.

Is the rally the real deal or is it a fake-out bear market rally?

Should investors who have seen some of their stocks jump double digits in the last 3 months cash in their gains and move to the sidelines?
