Positive Action: Expected by Value-Watchers

June 27, 2013 | About:

The rally did not surprise value investors.

The market’s 5% pull-back combined with rising corporate earnings had driven the Standard & Poors 500’s trailing 12-month P/E to a lower level than at its dead low last November.

The previous five times the broad index touched, or broke below, its 50-day moving average we experienced significant v-shaped rallies. The most recent low was the most extremely oversold condition since last November.

That was especially true in the Nasdaq where Apple (AAPL), the largest single component, had tainted the overbought/oversold level to really bearish readings.

Buying when others are panicking feels scary. It almost always turns out to be the right move. Note the correlation of grossly oversold conditions and the S&P 500’s future direction over the following few months.

Extreme bearishness seems to provide a better guide (fewer false signals) than do the very overbought conditions.
