  • A Teflon S&P 500 [View article]
    "the ratio has been a very imprecise timing indicator: It’s been relatively high — above 20 — for almost all the last 20 years, "

    Shiller PE has been above 19.5 since November 1 ,2009 ...the SPY is
    up 108.16% (dividends reinvested) since November 1,2009.....

    the Shiller PE was above 23 during the period from 3/01/03 to 10/01/07...
    SPY was up 81.88% ( dividends reinvested) for that period....as you can see the Shiller PE misses some big up moves....very big
