Steve Leuthold of the Grizzly Short Fund predicts that the S&P 500 will rebound in 2009 to 1000.  His short fund returned 74% in 2008 and 26% so far this year.  He believes that comparisons to the Great Depression are ridiculous and is even urging investors not to invest in his own fund, since with an up market, his fund will go down.

“These comparisons people make with the Great Depression are totally out of touch with reality, and pretty stupid,” Leuthold told Bloomberg Television in an interview today. “We’ve been in much worse, much more panicked and more scary situations in the U.S.”
