A Roundup of Stock Market Discounts

Posted on: December 18, 2018

unnamed (1).jpgAs of the market close on Monday, December 17th, both the Dow and the S&P 500 have a 14% discount, the Nasdaq has a 18% discount and the small cap Russell 2000 index has a 22% discount.

On the Asian front, the Chinese market has a 27% discount, the Hong Kong market has a 22% discount, and the Japanese market has a 12% discount.

On the European front, the German market has a 21% discount, the UK market has a 14% discount, and the French market has a 15% discount.

According to my wardrobe theory of investment, this is a good time to buy stocks. If you were excited about buying stocks a few months back (when these markets were raising prices to new highs), you should be even more excited now!
