Mark Biller, executive editor at Sound Mind Investing, recently published an article on market valuation. Market valuation is the process of assessing the worth or value of the stock market or individual stocks within it. It helps investors assess whether prices are reasonable, manage risk, allocate assets, and make informed decisions. Market valuation is not a useful short-term timing tool, but it can inform long-term financial planning. Most measures suggest that the market is currently expensive, although valuations have moderated slightly from late 2021.
