S&P 500 Intrinsic Value

S&P 500 Intrinsic Value Update

If your gonna compare the current market to the last two bubble we had (internet and housing), you’re gonna have to wait until the S&P 500 hits 4700 (and earnings stay flat) before we can start having that conversation.

Q1 hedge fund letters, conference, scoops etc

“Davidson” submits:

The Dallas Fed reported 12mo Trimmed Mean PCE of 1.99%. This is slightly lower than last month’s report of 2.03% and in part causes the SP500 Value Investor Index to rise slightly. (Lower inflation justifies a higher valuation on earnings everything else being held equal) The SP500’s premium to the Value Investor Index is 26.65%. The Natural Rate is 4.93% and represents the long-term rough competitive level we should see from 10yr Treasuries.

The SP500 can rise to 60%-100%+ premium before it is deemed speculatively valued. The premium to the Value Investor Index is highly dependent on market psychology which is relatively pessimistic currently. This can be seen in the 10yr Treasury just above 2% being 60% below the Natural Rate when in previous market cycles 10yr rates were somewhat higher than Natural Rate.

This is not a speculative market. Economic trends imply much higher equity prices once investor pessimism shifts favorably.
