Valuation analysis for Simon Property Group Inc (NYSE:SPG)
Using a valuation model that pins earnings growth to PE multiples to determine relative value as that relates directly to earnings growth rates, Stock Traders Daily has issued a sell rating for shares of Simon Property Group Inc (NYSE:SPG). The observations offered below help to summarize the findings.
Importantly, our macro economic analysis, which is called The Investment Rate, suggests that natural demand for equities will decline materially as this year continues, the Investment Rate measures the rate of change in the amount of new money available to be invested into the U.S. economy on an annualized basis dating back to 1900 and extending through 2040, and we are currently in a period of declining natural inflows.
Naturally, conditions like this suggest that there will be fewer buyers of stocks, and when that happens multiple contractions are a natural byproduct, and this can happen without economic deterioration and while economic conditions remain stable. The demand cycle identified by the Investment Rate is likely to influence weaker economic conditions, however.
In market environments like this those stocks that appear rich relative to their earnings growth rate are most vulnerable to decline, and Simon property group appears rich when compared to its price to earnings growth multiple. We believe that as this year continues and the macro economic landscape plays out shareholders in SPG will consider valuation to be expensive, that means they will consider the stock to be a higher risk, and net selling pressure will likely drive the stock down to fair values.
