By the time you are the world’s biggest event in a fast-growing sub-segment from the financial industry, people give consideration.

There were a number of key takeaways.

One is that while everyone loves to worry – it makes them look seasoned, frugal, and smart – frequently that worry is misplaced.

Professor Jeremy Siegel did a great job of debunking the strength of Shiller’s CAPE Ratio, which puts the P/E ratio in the context of the prior ten years and that has shows U.S. markets in above- average territory.

Siegel’s conclusion was that no, U.S. markets aren’t widely overpriced.
