Investing Philosophy

Grantham has built much of his investing reputation over his long career by correctly identifying speculative market "bubbles" as they were happening and steering clients' assets clear of impending crashes. Grantham avoided investing in Japanese equities and real estate in the late eighties, as well as technology stocks during the internet bubble in the late nineties.

Most recently, Grantham began warning about the overvaluation of equity and credit markets in 2006, well before the start of the present crisis.

Stock Market Valuation: October 1, 2011
I started this monthly market valuation series in December 2009. The motivation for the article was that I was getting tired of hearing that the market was overvalued because P/E TTM was 87. This was ridiculous because earnings were deflated by the worst economic crash since the great depression. However, the question was how to value the market from a purely quantitative methodology, while ignoring all the outside noise and macro predictions of where the economy is headed. I looked for several different metrics to evaluate the market which over time have proven to be effective and decided to look at all the metrics, instead of just focusing on the last 12 months of earnings.

Market Valuations and Expected Returns – Feb. 5, 2014
The U.S. stock market had an excellent 2013. The performance of all three major U.S. stock indexes was the best since the financial crisis in 2008. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average continually hit historical highs. Yet the real reason for the bull market is nothing less than QE. Though some investors think the fundamentals of the U.S. economy continued to improve, for most Wall Street analysts, the Fed’s $85 billion monthly debt purchase plan is the real driving force behind the bull market.
