Dow 30 index is overvalued as of Dec 7, 2020

The Dow 30 index is a general index that measure the sentiment of the US equity market as well as investor in long run since it consist of the main 30 companies that affect the market and the economy in general. This index shows if the market is going in uptrend, downtrend or sideways. Because of that I used this index as a base for my analysis and I used all companies inside this index in order to come up with my index which shows the real value of Dow 30 index. My index which I am going to call it Sam 30 index is based in Dow 30 index as benchmark to all investors and traders alike to see if the Dow 30 index is an overvalued or undervalued or has fair value.

I am not going to describe the process that I did to come up with Sam 30 index, instead of that I am going to discuses how does Sam 30 index can be used in conjunction with the Dow 30 index in order to allow investors and traders see if there is an opportunity to go long or short or even to step aside and do nothing.

Let us assume that the Dow 30 is 30,000 points and Sam 30 is 23,400 that means the Dow is greater than Sam 30 with more than 6600 points, which means the Dow 30 is overvalued and investors should not invest in the market , and traders on the other hand should apply their technical analysis to see an opportunity for shorting any overvalued stock in this market. The same is true if the Dow 30 was 23,400 points and Sam 30 was about 35,000 that means the market is undervalued and investors and traders should look for an opportunity to go long with any undervalued stocks.

Sam 30 is not day by day index, instead is an index where its value updated whenever new earning report released by the companies that built the Dow 30 index. Once the earning report released for any company of those 30 companies that listed in Dow 30, Sam 30 index will be updated to its new value in the next day.

As of December 7, 2020 the Sam 30 value is 22,495.92, that means, when we do our analysis that described above, the market is overvalued

Comparison between Dow 30 and Sam 30

As you can see above the Dow 30 is greater than Sam 30 with more than 7,700 points which means that the market is overvalued and I suggested that investors to step back and do nothing while traders can short any overvalued company based in their technical analysis.
