Chart of the Week - Global Equity Valuations
Global PE10 Valuations: this chart compares the PE10 ratio (i.e. price vs trailing average earnings over a rolling 10-year look-back period) across the major chunks of global equities: i.e. USA, Emerging Markets [EM] and Developed Markets excluding-USA [DM ex-US].
The clear standout is US valuations, which are approaching dotcom bubble levels in absolute terms. Not only that, US is trading at a very sharp premium relative to the rest of the world (at 2.25x that of global ex-US — which is the highest valuation premium ever recorded!).
Although emerging markets and developed ex-US are up quite a bit from the extreme cheap levels they were last year, they still offer a significantly cheaper valuations compared with the US, and look reasonable vs their own history.
Key point: US PE10 valuations look stretched, especially relative to EM & DM ex-US.
