2006 Major Market Value Analysis

and Latin America
Our friend, statistical expert, Michael Keppler,
continually researches all major stock markets and compares
their value based on current book to price, cash flow to
price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return
on equity and cash flow return. He compares each major stock
market’s history and from this develops his good value
emerging stock markets strategy.
Here is a condensation of his latest 2006 review
of major market developments & outlook.
After suffering a 4.4 % decline last month,
the largest monthly drawdown since September 2002,
Major Markets equities rebounded this month.
The Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI)
World Total Return Index gained 0.5 % in local currencies,
was unchanged in US dollars and advanced 0.4 % in euros.
Year-to-date, the MSCI World TR Index advanced
2.9 % in local currencies and 6.1 % in US dollars. However,
due to a 7.8 % decline of the dollar versus the euro, the
Major Markets benchmark lost 2.2 % in euros year-to-date.
This last month twelve markets were up, five
markets declined and one Market (Austria) was unchanged.
Performance measurements are based on total
returns in local currencies, unless mentioned otherwise.
Singapore led the monthly winners with a 2.8
% gain, followed by the United Kingdom (+ 2.2 %) and Australia
Among the decliners, Norway (-1.4 %) stood
out, followed by Belgium (-0.7 %), Canada and Denmark (both
down 0.6 %).
Year-to-date, seventeen markets had positive
returns and one market (Japan) declined. As in the previous
year, Norway (+12.7 %), the only market with a double digit
gain, continues to lead, followed by Australia (+8.4 %) and
Spain (+7.5 %).
The worst performers year to date are Japan
(-1.3 %), Sweden (+1.3 %), and Denmark (+1.4 %).
There are no changes in our performance ratings
The Top Value Model Portfolio contains
Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands
and Singapore at equal weights.
Keppler’s current ratings suggest that
these markets offer the highest expectation of superior performance.
