A good time to consider allocating to equities ?

A good time to consider allocating to equities ?

At Montgomery Investment Management we don’t claim any special ability to predict where equity markets will go next, but we do know that buying equities when they are relatively inexpensive is a reliable path to better than average long-term returns. One simple way of gauging relative value is to compare the dividend yield for the market as a whole with its historical average (although we don’t advocate valuing individual companies in this way). It’s worth noting that the current dividend yield on the ASX All Ordinaries is around 4.65%, vs an average of 3.84% for the last 20 years (Source: IRESS).
