Just How Overvalued Is The Market? Here Are 20 Metrics To Help You Decide | Zero Hedge

Despite the recent modest profit-taking in the S&P 500, the market – just shy of its all time high 2,400 level – remains in nosebleed valuation territory.

As Bank of America calculates, in March the S&P 500 forward P/E was little-changed amid a flat month for stocks, and at 17.5x continues to trade at its highest levels since 2002 (on a trailing basis P/E is at 19.6 and 29.0 based on the Shiller PE). This is almost one turn higher since we last performed a similar valuation exercise back in December.

Hardly a bargain, stocks remain stretched vs. history on the majority of metrics Bank of America tracks (Table 2) and as Savita Subramanian points out, the only way stocks still look cheap is relative to bonds. While BofA is quick to warn that today’s elevated valuations suggest longer-term caution on stocks, it reminds clients that “valuations typically matter little in the final stage of a bull market during which sentiment and positioning are the key drivers of returns.” This is also known as the so-called “just buy everything” cop out.

Stripping away BofA’s subjective commentary, to allow readers to decide for themselves whether stocks are massively overvalued and overbought, or perhaps cheap, here is a breakdown of the S&P 500 across a wide variety of valuation measures — 20 in total — to gauge whether US stocks look cheap vs. history.  What the analysis shows is that of 20 metrics, the S&P is overvalued based on 18 by as much as 85% (on a historical market cap to GDP basis) and up to 105% if looking at the S&P in WTI terms, and is cheap only according Price to Free Cash Flow (25.1x vs 28.4x) which however is a function of ultra low interest rates, and also based on a ratio of the S&P-to-Russell 2000 fwd PE multiples. A third metric which last December suggested stocks were “cheap“, namely trailing normalized PE (19.6x vs 19.0x average) flipped to “rich” in the past 5 months…

Panic Begins to Grip the Market; Tech Stocks Experience Longest Losing Streak in 5 Years 

Image result for pictures of stock market panic

 

By Michael Synder

S&P 500 tech stocks have now fallen for 9 days in a row.  The last time tech stocks declined for so many days in a row was in 2012, and that was the only other time in history when we have seen such a long losing streak.  As I have stated before, the post-election “Trump rally” is officially done, and the market is starting to roll over as investors begin to realize that all of the buying momentum has completely evaporated.  Tech stocks tend to be particularly volatile, and so the fact that they are starting to lead the way down should definitely be alarming to many in the investing community.

Of course it isn’t just tech stocks that are falling.  The Dow was down another 59 points on Wednesday, and the S&P 500 has closed beneath its 50 day moving average for the very first time since the election.  For those that have been waiting for a key technical signal before getting out of the market, there is one for you.

The price of gold was up again, and that is definitely not surprising in this geopolitical environment.  The closer we get to war the higher gold and silver prices will go, and if we actually get into a major conflict we will see them blast into the stratosphere.

Another key indicator that I am watching very closely is the VIX.  On Wednesday it shot up above 16 for the very first time since the day after Trump’s election victory, and many believe that it could soon go much higher.  The following is an excerpt from a CNBC report

The VIX measures the size of the S&P 500’s expected moves over the next 30 days, and consequently tends to run just a bit hotter than volatility over the past 30 days. Yet one-month realized vola…

Federal Reserve Now Committed to Raising Interest Rates on Accelerated Schedule to Speed the Arrival of the “Trump Crash” | Stillness in the Storm

Thursday, March 23, 2017


(Daniel BarkerOn Wednesday, March 15, the Federal Reserve announced it had raised its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point – a move likely to have noticeable effects on the economy, and not necessarily positive ones.

In fact, many worry that the move could trigger severe financial consequences, including a long-feared adjustment of the stock market that (according to at least one analyst) could send share prices tumbling 6,000 points to below 15,000 – nearly 30 percent below last week’s close.

Raising rates will also affect other sectors of the economy. Some fear rate hikes could lead to another housing crisis – when interest rates are high, it’s more difficult for homeowners to afford their mortgage payments.

Whatever negative effects the rate hikes will have on the economy, it’s an easy bet they will be blamed on President Donald Trump. The timing of this year’s rate hikes (there are two more projected before the end of 2017) has some wondering whether Janet Yellen and the Federal Reserve are playing politics and using the accelerated rate increases as a means to undermine Trump and his presidency.

Could this be true? Let’s look at the evidence.

Have We Reached A Turning Point For Stocks? Tuesday Was The Worst Day For The Stock Market In 6 Months | Stillness in the Storm

Wednesday, March 22, 2017


(Michael SnyderThe post-election stock market rally is officially over. After hovering near record highs for the past couple of weeks, U.S. stocks had their worst day in six months on Tuesday. For quite some time it has been clear that the momentum of the post-election rally had been exhausted, and a pullback of this nature was widely anticipated. But even though stocks fell by more than 1 percent during a single trading session for the first time since last September, it is going to take a whole lot more than that to bring stock prices back into balance. In fact, stocks are so overvalued at this point that it would take a total decline of about 40 to 50 percent before key stock valuation measures return to their long-term averages.

So we are still in a giant stock market bubble. All Tuesday did was shave about one percent off of that bubble.

Let’s review some of the numbers from the carnage that we witnessed…

-The Dow was down 237.85 points (1.14 percent)

-The S&P 500 was down 1.2 percent on the day

-The Nasdaq was down 1.8 percent at the closing bell

-Financial stocks were down more than 2.5 percent

-Overall, it was the worst day for banking stocks since the Brexit vote

-Bank of America is now down more than 10 percent since Trump’s speech to Congress

-The Russell 2000 (small-cap stocks) dropped about 2 percent

Some prominent names on Wall Street were warning ahead of time that this was coming. Marko Kolanovic was one of those voices…

Marko Kolanovic has done it again.

Last Thursday, one day ahead of the massive quad-witching where over $1.4 trillion in options expired in relatively tame fashion, the JPM quant warned of “near-term market weakness” and suggested “reducing US equity exposure. And, sure enough, JP Merlin’s Gandalf timed it impeccably yet again. To be sure, the jury is still out on what caused the selloff – lack of votes to repeal Obamacare, fears about Trump’s fiscal policy agenda, the market’s sudden realization that it is at 30 CAPE, or just a technical revulsion – what matters is that once again, like clockwork, Kolanovic called a key inflection point just days in advance.
