Stingy Investor Tip Sheet

U.S. Stock Market Ratios

With the U.S. stock market in upheaval, it's a good idea to take a look at how expensive the market has been historically by examining Price/Sales and Price/Book Value graphs.

S&P500 P/S

S&P500 P/B

While the market isn't as cheap as it was in 2009, I think that it's fair to say that it is less expensive than it has been for much of the last 20 years. Nonetheless, further declines are certainly possible because we aren't at blow-out valuations seen in the more distant past.
