2000 to Today, update

Looking at the Numbers

Three months ago I listed some key benchmark figures as part of the three-year anniversary of the March 9, 2009 low in the equity markets.  But a lot has happened since, such as the continuation of the spring bull run and then another collapse on renewed euro debt concerns and now a slowing U.S. economy. So I wanted to give you some further key benchmarks going forward.

All the following is based on closing prices. I added the low for the week of 10/3/11 for further perspective.

S&P 500

3/24/00…1527 [then all-time high]
10/9/02…..776
10/9/07…1565 [new all-time high}
3/9/09……676
3/9/11…..1320
10/3/11....1099
3/9/12…..1370
4/2/12…..1419 (cycle high)
6/4/12…..1278 (recent low)

Nasdaq

3/10/00…5048 [all-time high]
10/9/02…1114
10/9/07…2803
3/9/09…..1268
3/9/11…..2751
10/3/11…2335
3/9/12…..2988
3/26/12…3122
6/1/12…..2747

Dow Jones

1/14/00…11722 [then all-time high]
10/9/02…..7286
10/9/07…14164 [new all-time high]
3/9/09……6547
3/9/11…..12213
10/3/11…10655
3/9/12…..12922
5/1/12…..13279
6/4/12…..12101

But what of the leading international indices? [using S&P high of 3/24/00 as benchmark date]

London FTSE

3/24/00…6738
10/9/02…3742
10/9/07…6615
3/9/09…..3542
3/9/11…..5937
10/4/11…4944
3/9/12…..5887
3/16/12…5965
6/1/12…..5260

Frankfurt DAX

3/24/00…7932
10/9/02…2597
10/9/07…7980
3/9/09…..3692
3/9/11…..7131
10/4/11…5216
3/9/12…..6880
3/16/12…7157
6/6/12…..5969

Tokyo Nikkei

3/24/00…19958
10/9/02…..8539
10/9/07…17159
3/9/09……7086
3/9/11…..10589
10/5/11…..8382
3/9/12……9929
3/27/12…10255
6/4/12……8310

By the way, it was way back on 12/29/89…yes, 1989…that the Nikkei hit its all-time high of 38916. By 4/2/90, it was already down to 28002, and the rest is history.

*So…look at the performance of all six of the above since the spring of 2000. Only the Dow Jones is up. Yet another reason why many are still out of the market.
