In this video insight Roger discusses stock market analogs and attempting to predict what the market is going to do in the future. How effective are such analogs? Not very, because the companies that make up the market are impacted differently and because interest rates, government and central bank settings, labour and productivity are all dissimilar and the drivers of markets will cause a different reaction.

    Hi Roger, I bought the first edition of value-able and have found it to be a real gem and have found your tables especially good at valuing those great growth stocks such as CSL which I have owned for years. I was recently revaluing it using your tables & was wondering what the investors required return after tax would be. In the book you recommend 9% for a stock like CSL, but in this time of ultra low interest rates are analysts using a much lower rate of return. If so do you have tables that provide lower required rates of return down to say 5%. Cheers Russell

    • Hi russell, Yes it would be appropriate to lower the hurdle rate given current ultra low levels. I will publish a table again for Value.able readers with lower discount rates.
