A collaboration of leading investment indicators

Post by ddb » Tue Aug 07, 2012 11:59 am

I enjoyed this blog post from Above the Market. The author, Robert Seawright, looks at PE10, DY10, Tobin's Q, Market Cap to GDP, and Bond Yields, and compares each to historical averages. He is careful to point out that short-term market timing based on valuations is a difficult (i.e. useless) endeavor, but that all of these indicators suggest that US stocks are overvalued and poised for less-than-average long-term returns.
