on charts of P/E data
"I'm trying to get charts of historic p/e ratios of major indices, in particular the Dow Jones IA. I can't find any such charts in your Chart Library and your search facility draws a blank. Is it possible to access p/e ratio charts from your Chart Library?"

Eoin Treacy's view Thank you for this inquiry which comes up from time to time. Unfortunately, we do not receive fundamental data in our feed from Bloomberg. As a result we do not have charts for P/Es or dividend yields in the Chart Library for the majority of instruments.

However, here is a chart downloaded from Bloomberg of the Dow Jones Industrials Average's P/E since 1994. This chart helps to illustrate the valuation contraction so often mentioned in Fullermoney over the last decade and the potential for valuation expansion over the next decades.
