I just published my latest analysis of equity market valuation.
The S&P 500 Index is overvalued on the basis of the $40.00 trailing earnings but this takes no account of the fact that Q408 losses continue to deflate trailing earnings.
Q209 earnings were about $14.00, an annualized level of $56. On that basis, equities are more attractive.
Disclosure: no position.
For those willing to use forecast earnings, equities are quite attractive with 17-25% upside.
The report debates the pros and the cons, concluding that, unlike last March when valuation levels were factually attractive, current valuation levels are not quite as compelling.
