Stingy Investor Tip Sheet

A Median Market

I like to track median market stats to gauge the availability of bargains. I take an index, say the S&P/TSX 60, and determine its median P/E. That's the point at which half the stocks in the index have higher P/Es and half have lower P/Es. The same approach is used for P/B and dividend yield.

After the recent sell off, stocks are cheaper than they've been for a long time. So, take heart, long-term returns from this point are likely to be quite generous.
