Secular Stock Markets Explained

Tuesday, June 13, 2006 | 10:05 AM

We've been discussing the 100 year charts that look at the secular history of Bull and Bear markets, including Adjusting Stock Prices for Inflation. This has been a favorite of mine for some time, and I highlighted it in the technical segment (part II) of the Cult of the Bear.

Ed Easterling was kind enough to let us run his chart, and I find it to be the very best of these longterm secular views: He overlays the Bull and Bear periods with trailing P/E -- this fits in very nicely with our contracting P/E thesis.

Incidentally, in terms of what readers purchased via links at this site, Ed's book, Understanding Secular Stock Market Cycles, is your most popular buy, just edging out Barton Bigg's Hedgehogging this quarter.

Can we go a bit deeper into the data here? What was the direction of the E in these periods? My guess would be down and then it is a bit of a duh. Stocks go up when earnings improve but go down when they don't. What am I missing?
