Valuation and Sentiment Update

July 2022

The recent bear market is one of the ten worst in the past 70+ years. In times like these, it is important to gauge the present level of valuation and sentiment compared to history. Although fundamental and financial analysis are the core parts of our investment management process, we also use valuation and sentiment levels as secondary components to our process. Valuation and sentiment can help the team hone in on buy and sell points.

The valuation metrics we reference show how the overall domestic equities market is valued based on history – from green (inexpensive) to red (expensive). Meanwhile the sentiment metrics point to extremes in investor behavior and views, either bullish or bearish. This analysis is proprietary from Osborne Partners.

Osborne Partners Investment Team Analyst, Jason Rodnick, CFA reviews various key metrics in this 4 minute video.
