Resource description

Price-earnings ratios are part of the toolkit that is used for assessing the valuation ofindividual firms on the stock market as well as the entire market itself. This paperpresents consistent P/E series for the liquid Danish shares adjusted for share buybacks.The results show that over the period from 1969 to 2003, the average (trailing)P/E equals 13.5. The P/E reaches its lowest level in 1980, which is likely to be due toa soaring oil price, high wage increases and interest rates approaching 20 percent.Notwithstanding optimistic equity pricing also in Denmark in the late 1990s, theupturn in Danish valuations was more moderate than in the US. The correction thatsets in subsequently reversed essentially the gains in the Danish P/E in the 1990s.
