Ftse100 P/e Value

Recommended Posts

I randomly periodically check the values of the FTSE indices.

Until just about a weeks ago, when the FTSE was at pretty much the same levels it was this week, I noted that the P/E of the FTSE100 was about 13.2-ish.

Then I note yesterday it seems to have now 'jumped' up to 14.8-ish.

I was under the impression, partly from reading mainstream press articles (yeah yeah I know I know!), that the FTSE earnings were holding up?

The latest FTSE data release (below) suggests that at least some major parts of the 100-index have seen non-trivial declines in earnings?


Which sectors (or companies if it is really isolated) have been responsible for this recent jump in P/E value?

Incidentally the recent, shortlived, decline in the FTSE to almost 6000-ish seems to have curiously preceded this jump in P/E value. I know that that particular decline was supposedly on the coattails of the recent unnerving of markets by Bernankes 'taper' talk? But I wonder how much was also due to the market pricing in forthcoming earnings disappointments?

I think dividends must be giving the footsie a reasonably solid base. I hold a few high yielders as the income from them is so must better than elsewhere.
