      • Used to calculate betas
      Uses of Market Measures
    • 17.
      • Exogenous or predetermined variables
        • Potential output of economy (Y*)
          • Productivity, resources, investment opportunities
        • Corporate tax rate (t x )
        • Government spending (G)
        • Nominal money supply (M)
          • Three policy variables subject to governmental decisions
      Determinants of Stock Prices
    • 18.
      • G and M affect stock prices by
        • Affecting total aggregate spending (Y), which together with the tax rate (t x ) affects corporate earnings
      • Total aggregate spending, together with economy’s potential output (Y*) and past changes in prices, determine current changes in the price level (P)
      Determinants of Stock Prices
    • 19.
      • Corporate earnings and expected inflation affect expected real earnings
      • Interest rates and required rates of return also affected by expected inflation
      • Stock prices affected by earnings, rates
        • If economy is prospering, earnings and stock prices will be expected to rise
      Determinants of Stock Prices
    • 20.
      • From constant growth version of Dividend Discount Model
      • P 0 =D 1 /(k-g)
      • Inverse relationship between interest rates (required rates of return) and stock prices is not linear
        • Determinants of interest rates also affect investor expectations about future
      Determinants of Stock Prices
    • 21.
      • To apply fundamental analysis to the market, estimates are needed of
        • Stream of shareholder benefits
          • Earnings or dividends
        • Required return or earnings multiple
      • Steps in estimating earnings stream
        • Estimate GDP, corporate sales, corporate earnings before taxes, and finally corporate earnings after taxes
      Valuing the Market
    • 22.
      • The earnings multiplier
        • More volatile than earnings component
          • Difficult to predict
        • Cannot simply extrapolate from past P/E ratios, because changes can and do occur
        • 1986-2003 average for S&P/TSX: 37.44 (ignoring 2001)
        • P/E ratios tend to be high when inflation and interest rates are low
      • Put earnings estimate and multiplier together
      Valuing the Market
    • 23.
      • Difficult to consistently forecast the stock market, especially short term
        • EMH states that future cannot be predicted based on past information
        • Although market timing difficult, some situations suggest strong action
      • Investors tend to lose more by missing a bull market than by dodging a bear market
      Forecasting Changes in the Market
    • 24.
      • Leading relationship exists between stock market prices and economy
        • Can the market be predicted by the stage of the business cycle?
      • Consider business cycle turning points well in advance, before they occur
        • Stock total returns could be negative (positive) when business cycle peaks (bottoms)
      Using the Business Cycle to Make Forecasts
    • 25.
      • If investors can recognize the bottoming of the economy before it occurs, a market rise can be predicted
        • Switch into stocks, out of cash
        • As economy recovers, stock prices may level off or even decline
        • Based on past, the market P/E usually rises just before the end of the slump
      Using the Business Cycle to Make Market Forecast
    • 26.
      • Best known market indicator is the price/earnings ratio
        • Other indicators: dividend yield, earnings yield
      • Problems with key market indicators
        • When are they signalling a change?
        • How reliable is the signal?
        • How quickly will the predicted change occur?
      Using Key Variables to Make Market Forecasts
    • 27.
      • Market forecasts are not easy, and are subject to error
        • Investors should count on the unexpected occurring
      • Intelligent and useful forecasts of the market can be made at certain times, at least as to the likely direction of the market
