From 1881 to 1995, the US cyclically adjusted PE ratio and was subject to mean reversion. Since 1995, this key measure of equity valuation appears to have moved onto a permanently higher plateau. In this webinar, Russell Napier, FSIP, analyses the key drivers of equity valuation mean reversion.

  • What are the key forces that drive equity valuations to both extreme highs and extreme lows?
  • How quickly might we expect such mean reversion to occur?
  • What explains the seeming permanent shift to a higher range of equity valuations post 1995?
  • Are the forces that have pushed equity valuations to their current higher levels truly structural in nature or have we been in a very long cycle which is about to reverse?
