Where the Bargains Are

December 7, 2017

Jeffrey Kleintop of Charles Schwab & Co. has a new post showing the price-earnings valuations of different market indexes. It shows that U.S. stocks are the most expensive in the world and that there are better bargains and margins of safety outside the U.S.

Though valuations are above average—reflecting the better than average economic and earnings environment, there is no reason to believe stocks couldn’t go higher over the next year and even produce double-digit gains based on nearly 50 years of history, although of course history is no guarantee of future performance.
