An increasing concern for many investors is the continued buildup of the U.S. market. Year to date, the S&P 500 total return index is up about 9.6 per cent, continuing a rally that essentially spans back to 2009. Further concern is validated when looking at the price-to-book ratio for the index, which currently sits at roughly three, a level close to that of September, 2007, prior to the 2008 housing bubble. By no means does this imply we are heading into another 2008, but it does raise the question whether there is still room left for value investors.
