Stocks Bear Market 2012 Report

Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market Nov 29, 2011 - 12:17 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market's 17-month drop into March 2009 erased all the gains in the Dow Jones Industrial Average since the late 1990s. That's a full decade's worth of gains.

And the two-week drop that ended August 9 basically wiped out all the gains from 2010 - 2011.


Just since August 1, there have been over 25 days that the Dow closed more than 200 points above or below its previous close. That's volatility.

What does this all mean for the markets and your portfolio? Is another downturn ahead or is it finally a buying opportunity?

Elliott Wave International has just released a free report that will help you navigate the year ahead. You'll get all of the indicators that they have been analyzing over the past year, with 25 eye-opening charts and 14 pages of straightforward commentary. As volatile as the markets have been and will likely continue to be, you owe it to yourself and your portfolio to download this free report.

This is one of our favourite charts, it depicts two different valuation measures. On X axis, we show the S&P500 annual dividend yield, and on the Y-axis the S&P Industrials' price to book value ratio. The box shows you normal valuation, at least as it was established in the 20th century. You can see that the dividend yield fluctuated from around 3% at tops in the market to 6 or 7 percent at bottoms in the market.

The most extreme readings came here, in 1928 and 1972, just slightly outside the box. And when the market got very over priced, as it did in 1928,1929, and right here in September 29, the market swing the other way and reached extremely low valuations in 1931, 1932, and the extreme low here in June 1932.

How far down do you think the market is going to go to make up for the valuation that it reached in March 2000?

This is so far out of the normal universe, we call it Pluto.

The market has been working its way, ever since that all time high, towards more reasonable valuations. But it's been a choppy ride; the rally into 2006-7 pushed it up to here, and the rally into 2011 pushed valuations to here. You can see that the dividend yield in the S&P was only 2% in April 2011, and the price to book value in April was around 5.5 times, way higher than the normal level between 1 and 2 times that we see through most of the 20th century. I think, because of this overvaluations is so extreme, we're going to see ........
