There are many alternative models for attempting to estimate how undervalued or overvalued the stock market is. Among them are:
Price/Book P/Retained Earnings Q-ratio (Market Capitalization of the entire market /replacement cost) Market Capitalization of the entire market / GDP Shiller’s CAPE10 (and all modified versions)
Typically these explain 60-70% ofthe variation in stock returns. Today I can tell you there is a better model, which is not mine, I found it at the blogPhilosophical Economics. The basic idea of the model is this: look at the proportion of US wealth held by private investors in stocks using theFed’s Z.1 report. The higher the proportion, the lower future returns will be.

- [By John Divine]
Snap-on Incorporated (SNA) is my choice for the Best Stocks for 2016 competition. At a market cap of $10 billion, I doubt it will double over the next year, as some of the smaller companies in this competition might be able to.
That said, Snap-on, which manufactures and markets hand tools and diagnostic equipment, is a rock-solid company with an attractive valuation and impressive growth. It goes for 22 times earnings, pays a consistent and modest dividend, and has been around since 1920.
As cars get more tech-heavy and complicated, newer tools and better diagnostics will be needed — and that’s SNA’s bread ‘n’ butter.
