Posted by Caldwell Trust

With Thursday’s close of the NASDAQ at a new all-time peak of 5056, and noting the last time we saw these levels was 15 years ago, we are somewhat comforted by the state of that market this time around.  For instance: The price to earnings ratio of the NASDAQ in 2000 was: 49.1, today its 25, price to sales then: 11.7, now 3.5 and Dividend Yield, then: .06, now 1.13.  (source NDR). The “nose bleed” valuations of the NASDAQ 15yrs reminds us that certain areas of the market place can become very frothy and stay that way for an extended period and the correction phase can last even longer.  We're confident that the fundamentals of the index are on much sounder footing and the same can be said for broader indexes such as the S&P500.

Students at Venice High School Meet Economist Stephen Moore

“Kelly” Caldwell Jr. always stays close to his Venice roots.

The most recent instance of this philosophy recently occurred when the company brought world-class economist Stephen Moore to the school.  Moore presented a talk about the current economic situation and his outlook to 450 junior- and senior-year students, followed by a lively question-and-answer session. “I’m bullish on the economy,” he told the group.
