The Business Insider: The Money Game The historically expensive S&P 500 could be seeing a loss of reopening optimism, Bank of America says

  • Quarantine plays including Zoom and FedEx commanded a 40% premium in March over firms slammed by the coronavirus pandemic. The market has since split the difference between the premium's pre-outbreak discount and March's peak.
  • "We think the market could be pausing, just like Texas and a few other states, in reopening optimism," the team led by Savita Subramanian wrote in a note to clients.
  • Such a halt would endanger the S&P 500's historically expensive valuation. The index is statistically expensive by all 18 metrics used by the analysts apart from equity risk premium and free cash flow.
