    Rajiv, looking at the bottom chart, I wonder if the data is accurate.

    What numbers it is using? Current earnings? Forecast 2010 earnings? (I am assuming the former).

    I would really like to see the numbers being substantiated.


    If indeed the P/E is so out of whack, believe me I will be short the day icm63 pulls the trigger or even before since someone else already did so.

    More importantly, why is no one is talking about this? To the contrary, the IMF announced today that the recession is over...

    The data is here as an excel sheet till 12/31/2008. The July number is here

    The March number I believe was 132 well in line with the July Number

    I will move it to the Zoog post.

    Also, I cannot access the select area -- your links is to that area.

    I investigated this a few months ago, I don't have time right now to search it down again, but remove GM from the totals and you get a different picture.
