Original and Modified Historical Ratio of Total Market Cap over GDP (%)

The current ratio of total market cap over GDP for Turkey is 55.86%. The recent 10 year high was 85.07%; the recent 10 low was 21.1%. If we assume that the ratio will reverse to the recent 10 years mean of 33.08% over the next 8 years, the contribution to expected annual return is -6.34%.

Based on the modified version, the current TMC / (GDP + Total Assets of Central Bank) Ratio for Turkey is 43.19%. The recent 10 year high was 57.2%; the recent 10 low was 17.53%. If we assume that the ratio will reverse to the recent 10 years mean of 25.96% over the next 8 years, the contribution to expected annual return is -6.17%.

This is the detailed historical chart of the original TMC / GDP ratio and modified TMC / (GDP + Total Assets of Central Bank) ratio.

Based on these historical valuations, we have divided market valuation into five zones:

Ratio = Total Market Cap / GDP Valuation
Ratio ≤ 23% Significantly Undervalued
23% < Ratio ≤ 30% Modestly Undervalued
30% < Ratio ≤ 36% Fair Valued
36% < Ratio ≤ 43% Modestly Overvalued
Ratio > 43% Significantly Overvalued
Where are we today (2024-07-14)? Ratio = 55.86%, Significantly Overvalued

Based on these modified historical valuations, we have divided market valuation into five zones:

Ratio = Total Market Cap / (GDP + Total Assets of Central Bank) Valuation
Ratio ≤ 18% Significantly Undervalued
18% < Ratio ≤ 23% Modestly Undervalued
23% < Ratio ≤ 29% Fair Valued
29% < Ratio ≤ 34% Modestly Overvalued
Ratio > 34% Significantly Overvalued
Where are we today (2024-07-14)? Ratio = 43.19%, Significantly Overvalued

Predicted and Actual Returns

From the equation presented on the U.S. market valuation page,

Investment Return (%) = Dividend Yield (%) + Business Growth (%) + (Re/Rb)(1/T)-1

We can compute the predicted and actual returns of the Turkey stock market over a given time period, T. In the calculation, we set T to equal eight years, the approximate length of a full economic cycle. The calculated results are presented in the chart below.

The Predicted Return line indicates the expected, or predicted annualized return for the next eight years if the current TMC / GDP ratio reverts to its recent 10 years mean of 33.08%.

The Modified Predicted Return line indicates the expected, or predicted annualized return for the next eight years if the current TMC / (GDP + Total Assets of Central Bank) ratio reverts to its recent 10 years mean of 25.96%.

The Actual Return line indicates the actual, annualized return of the Turkey stock market over eight years. We use “BIST 100” to do the actual return calculation. We can see the calculations largely predicted the trend in the stock market as the actual return line is closely parallel to the two predicted return lines.

Conclusion

Under the original buffett indicator, the stock market of Turkey is expected to return 19.5% a year for the coming years. This is from the contribution of economic growth in local current prices: 23.86%, Dividend Yield: 1.95% and valuation reverse to the mean -6.34%.

Under the modified model, the contribution of economic growth and dividend yield stays the same while the valuation reverse to mean changes to -6.17%. Consequently, the stock market of Turkey is expected to return 19.6% a year.

This is the projected return and the modified projected return of the stock market in Turkey relative to other countries. Click on the country on the right sidebar to check out the details for each country.
