Market P/E Ratio Volatility Channel for The US Stock Market

The key point of the chart is that earnings and P/Es are cyclical. Spare us the your slacker analysis, merely stating that “you can make any chart look however you want.” (At least this sarcasm is amusing).

"I am very skeptical of earnings forecasts, because they have been so terrible for most of my adult life.  The conspiracy of optimists always seems to overestimate future earnings.

Trailing earnings are real data, not opinion of guesswork. They provide a factual basis for valuation, and not a wishful or theoretical version. Those who were claiming that there is no recession have now taken to saying we are at the worst levels of the recession. Often, we see forward earnings estimates at the heart of this faulty analysis."
