  • At a p/e of 10 I don't think China will be leading the push lower for long. Historically China's p/e is 20+, add to that 8% growth and you have the conditions for an explosive move up over the next 3 years. Blackrock says overweight China, Honk Kong, Russia and Brazil. No one has a crystal ball, but over the past years Blackrock has come the closest to having a crystal ball.

  • Thank you for the data; that's exactly what I mean that China is ahead of the curve with a p/e of 10; all hell is going to break lose if our markets fall to an average p/e of 10 from current highs, which I am not aware of but I assume in the p/e 18-20 range
