    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Name These Two Markets

Tyler Durden's picture


The following two charts represent the equity market performance of two rather well known nations in the last 6 months or so. One is a country  on the verge of cataclysmic currency devaluation and the other is in the middle of a catalcysmic currency devaluation. Of course, both would be at the top of every CNBC talking head's list of buys since performance has been so great - so which would you prefer? As we celebrate USDJPY 100, Nikkei 14,500, and whatever else it is that we should be celebrating about the surging input costs for Japanese businesses - the lesson is clear for those who want to send their market soaring - crash your economy.



P.S. based on Bloomberg's latest data, the Nikkei is opening at a P/E around 29x - that is all.

Unfortunately one can't trade ARS/USD, except by carrying a wad of fresh hundreds to Buenos Aires.

But here's the chart of the peso's collapse, under Argentina's Peronist flake government:

Tyler: Please plot the Nikkei on P/B or EV/EBITDA.  Its among the cheapest in the world.  P/E looks high only becuase corporations are loaded with cash.  But, if you want to promote only a specific agenda feel free to data mine to find the numbers that help your case.

Why would you plot an equity index on EV/EBITDA? Id rather see a figure that actually represents the value of equity without the extra noise.

Since the financial crash of 2008 the western economies (US, Euro zone and Japan) have been using quantitative easing (QE). QE is not new. It was also used extensively in the 1930's. Japan has been using forms of QE for over a decade. But when one looks at the velocity of money and the money multiplier the money is not getting into the broader economy. But it is getting into the stock markets largely through the large money center banks that are the major beneficiaries of QE. Rising stock market valuations help the money center banks balance sheets. It is believed for the US at least that QE is primarily to help prop up the banking systems in the US, the Euro zone and Japan. The banking system remains saddled with huge amounts of debt that is either toxic or uncollectable.
