    So the real P/E ratio is ???.

    What does the S&P have to drop to in order to reach traditional P/E valuation?

    <p><a href="http://www.chartoftheday.com/" target="_blank">Chart of the Day</a> provides this job dropping perspective on the current earnings environment: 12-month S&amp;P 500 earnings, relative to the peak in Q3 2007.</p>
    <p>With 38% of S&amp;P 500 companies reporting Q2 2009 numbers, on a real basis, earnings have declined over 98%.</p>
    <p>This is the largest decline on record going back to 1936.</p>
    <p>The folks at <a href="http://www.chartoftheday.com/" target="_blank">Chart of the Day</a> note that if current estimates hold &mdash; and that&rsquo;s a big &ldquo;if,&rdquo; as&nbsp; they are most likely too low &mdash; then Q3 2009 will see the first 12-month period during which S&amp;P 500 earnings are negative.</p>

  6. "Today's chart illustrates how earnings are expected (38% of S&P 500 companies have reported for Q2 2009) to have declined over 98% since peaking in Q3 2007, making this by far the largest decline on record (the data goes back to 1936)"

    I expect to make 3 million USD trading next week too - doesn't make it fact.
  7. it seems to me not a fair chart
