The ‘Buffett Yardstick’ may be signaling the worst risk-reward setup ever

Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway BRK.A, -0.98% says it’s “probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.”

The “Buffett Yardstick,” as longtime money manager Jesse Felder of the Felder Report calls it, plots the total value of the stock market against the overall size of the economy. What makes it so valuable, he says, is that it’s good at telling investors what to expect from equities going forward.


  • So does this mean Mr. Buffett is selling? Or is he just stockpiling even more cash? It's good to be king.
  • Yes, but wait a minute... we can't have two kings at the same time, can we? That guy in Washington says that he's the king. One of these guys is real and the other must be a phony!
