The US stock market is highly overvalued. Here's why…

By Simon Black

Looking back through more than a century of financial data, the long-term average P/E ratio for the S&P 500 has been about 15.

As of yesterday afternoon, the P/E ratio for the S&P 500 stock index reached 26.5.

That's high– more than 75% higher than the long-term average.

More importantly, since the 1870s, there have been a total of THREE periods in which the average stock P/E ratio was above 26.5.


The total size of the US stock market according to Federal Reserve data is $22.6 trillion.

Meanwhile the total size of the US economy is $18.8 trillion.

This puts the Buffett valuation at around 1.2, meaning the stock market is about 20% larger than the entire US economy.

Historically speaking, this is expensive. Stock markets start getting into trouble when the ratio surpasses 1.0.

Benefits of Pets

The benefits of canine companionship has found that owning a dog can cause some measurable physical changes in your body as well, such as:
1. raising serotonin and dopamine, which can help with relaxation, as well as oxytocin, the "love" hormone,
lowering triglycerides and cholesterol, and,
2. helping to lower your blood pressure.

So, if you don't have a dog in your life now, maybe it's time to visit your local shelter and think about adopting one.

Often we experience peaks and troughs of illumination and confusion. Why is it so?

Ratri' or Night signifies darkness. 'Shiva' means auspiciousness. So, 'Shivaratri' speaks of an auspiciousness which is inherent in darkness. It refers to the wisdom which exists in the midst of ignorance.

Ignorance and wisdom are not distinct; they are basically the same. They are the opposite polarities of the same underlying principle.

The state that transcends both wisdom and ignorance is Divinity. It is a stage which is not associated with any coming or going, where birth and death do not occur.

So long as there is birth for the body, death has to follow.

What is it that has taken birth? Is it the Inner-Self? No. It is only the body which has taken birth.

Remember, you are the eternal, never changing Inner-Self.

Light has value only when there is darkness. Therefore, in times of trouble and sorrow, whenever problems arise, remember to evoke the principle of Divinity, which will shed illumination and light!

- Divine Discourse, Feb 17, 1985.

Only by the light of the Divine lamp inside can you blossom as a worthwhile person.
