U.S. Stock Market Valuations

So where do stock market valuations stand after last year’s losses? We have shown many stock market valuation charts over the years. We showed the one below in April of 2015 when it showed the U.S. market was 79% above the mean valuation. It shows the average of four measures of U.S. stock market valuations from four sources compiled by Advisor Perspectives. The average of the four valuations along with the standard deviations above and below the mean are shown. The latest average value of 93% is down from last month's 107%. So valuations are a little better but still very high.

In light of this we will continue to emphasize downside protection, diversification and invest around the world where there are better values that here in the U.S. stock market.
