on charting the S&P500's earnings yield
“Would it be possible to have a very important chart put into the library - that is the earnings yield chart for the S&P 500 as it is the one single chart that can be used as a comparison between equities and bond valuations? Look forward to seeing if this one if possible. Many Thanks”

Eoin Treacy's view Thank you for this question but unfortunately, Bloomberg has not “tickerised” this information so we cannot add it to the Chart Library. While not exactly the same thing, I found this chart of the cash flow yield which may be of interest. has a long-term chart and data series for the earnings yield of the S&P 500 as well as for US Treasury yields. Here is chart of the spread between the two since 1950.
