Large Caps Cheapest Since 1951

Recommended Posts

Can you explain what a large cap is? Is it buying shares in a certain type of high profile company (i.e. Du Pont).

Would any fall in share prices make these large caps even more of a bargain?

(Look guys, I work in publishing. The only large caps I understand are drop caps!)

This article is about US large caps, in many respects UK large caps are even cheaper still , stocks like BP, Aviva and GSK are very cheap indeed , Aviva for example would be like buying a house with a 20% rental yield if you look at its underlying earnings , Plus the dividends can be tax free in your hands while buying US stocks for me least get a very nasty 30% with holding tax vs zip on uk divs .....

YA TMF AICMFP :lol: (and I ain't buyin' any of the above, though not necessarily for economic reasons)

UK stocks tend to have higher yields than US. And don't forget, US large caps are very, very big: most of our FTSE 100 wouldn't qualify by their standards. But there are good bargains to be had in our mid-caps too. And there are those like VOD which is large-cap even by US standards and *also* has a juicy yield.
