Market Cycles

The late Sir John Templeton was quoted as saying, “Bull-markets are born on pessimism, grow on scepticism, mature on optimism and die on euphoria.”

The chart below reflects a typical market cycle moving from pessimism through to euphoria, before falling back again to pessimism.

Market Sentiment Life Cycle

Source: Fisher Investments

Pessimism, scepticism, optimism, and euphoria are all human emotions which, when applied to given facts, can produce vastly different results. For example a company may produce earnings of say R500 million - in a pessimistic environment investors may be willing to only value the business at 7 times earnings (i.e. R3.5 billion), but in an optimistic and euphoric environment the same investors may be willing to value up to 20 times earnings (i.e. R10 billion).

Over extended periods of time valuations normalise, but through an investment cycle it can, and does, have a huge impact on investor returns.

When markets are pessimistic very few investors perceive of a time when euphoria will once again reign and vice versa. Ideally investors want to be buying in times of pessimism and scepticism and selling when the prevailing mood is euphoric, but this is not an exact science.

Globally while there is still a general prevailing mood of scepticism and very little optimism, there may well be a lot of runway left for the bull market in global equities, which began in pessimism around March 2009. Global market prices firmed 75% to April 2010, but have since traded in a large sideways pattern. For sure there will be a lot more volatility before we reach another euphoric stage.

Some of the indications of the current lack of enthusiasm for global equities are the very high equity risk premium (i.e. yields on shares are trading at a very wide gap compared to the yields on bonds), and net flows which continues to favour bonds over equities.

Given the general lack of optimism for risk assets, there is quite possibly still a long way to go for global markets before we see the top of the next bull market. Fisher Investments make the point that mega cap shares typically take over leadership about mid-way through a bull market and lead by a wide margin for the remaining duration and early into a subsequent bear market.

Kind regards,

Ian de Lange
