Hello Peter,I’m so sorry I missed making contact with you at the height of your enthusiasm for demonstrating the relevance of mathematics to the markets. You have obviously been extremely generous with your time and your expert knowledge. You see I have this belief that fair value for an index is quite easily determined by calculating the long term trend in earnings, projecting this trend line forward (say) 10 years (which gives $100 for the S&P500), and then multiplying this by the average PE ratio (16) to give the expected value 10 years hence (1600). Using the present value of the index (1350), its possible to calculate the expected annualised capital gain, add the dividend yield and then compare this with its long term average or the bond yield or whatever to see if the S&P500 is over- or under-valued.I’ve looked through your spreadsheets to see if there is anything I can use but I’ve so far found nothing that’s really relevant. Peter, would you be kind enough to suggest something that maybe I’ve missed or better still give me an opinion about this measure of fair value. For the Oz market the correlation between the expected 10-year return (annualised) and the actual return is 0.9 for the period 1974-2000. Not too shabby. And so I can’t believe this method is not more widely quoted.My other concern is whether you are still checking this blog (nothing since Jan!) and that you are well. I got the impression there were some health issues so I trust they’ve been resolved. Kind regards
Dear Gummy,Firstly, thank you many times for many thoughts.Secondly, do you know where I might find more information about (1) how to become as good at making web queries in Excel as you are and (2) parameter lists for various websites, please?Your gummy-stuff about Yahoo web queries http://www.gummy-stuff.org/Yahoo-data.htm shows a parameter list ("special tags") for Yahoo and I have tried but failed to find similar lists for MSN and other websites. Any ideas would be gratefully recieved.How about contact details for M.Kishinevsky and M.Higgs?How about an e-book on web queries? There is a surprising lack of information about how to do more than just establish a basic connection. I think the world might quickly become an even better place if advanced web query stuff was more widely known about.Thank you again.David HarrisLondon UK... ...but I have relatives in Ontario
Dear Peter,I stumbled across your Gummy web page - thank goodness! - while looking for option volatility spreadsheets and just happened to see your Martin Zweig work.This gave me several ideas on how to (hopefully) optimize the parameters for any stock or ETF.I'm still in the testing phases of this project, but even if it only works half as well hoped, well... who would have thought I could be that lucky?If that's the case, then Peter, thank you so much for all you have posted, for your generosity in providing your ideas and willingness to share.Thank you, thank you with all my heart.Best wishesDoug(Looking right back at you from the southern end of Ontario!)
were you able to contact dr gummy by email? I cannot find any, let me know..email@example.com
