Market Valuation and P/E Ratio

The stock market has climbed double digits since the election and now has investors starting to wonder if it has moved too high too quickly.  One of the most common measures of stock market valuation is the price to earnings ratio (P/E).  When you hear in the news or from your neighbor that a stock looks cheap or expensive, they are most likely referring to the P/E ratio.

Dow 20,000

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (Dow) is one of the oldest stock market indices in the world dating back to the late 1800’s.  The index contains 30 stocks of companies from the United States with most of them well known.  The Dow has been approaching the level of 20,000 since late last year, a level it has never reached.  It came within a point of that mark just recently.  Since the Dow contains only 30 stocks it does not provide the best measure of the broad market.  Most institutional investors refer to the Standard & Poor’s 500 when assessing the market.

Our thoughts and prayers go to the families affected by the terrorist attacks and for the people of France. It is always difficult to understand how some have such a lack of regard for human life. However, it is at times like these that we are grateful for the many good people who will stay enlisted in the effort to make our world safer.
