Not in the English OLD, and only permabull is in Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/permabull <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/permabull>): (finance, informal) A financial pundit who is permanently bullish on the stock market.

The “informal” label and “pundit” part both seem wrong to me.

(contrary to the informal label)
Remember the perennial permabears? Beyond debating specifics, it’s important to remember that pundits who have bet against this bull market have an incredibly poor history of identifying true warning signs.

(contrary to the pundit part of the definition)
The Dip you've been waiting for, Permabulls, but DO NOT go big on this. DCA is the name-of-the-game. It could go deeper.
