The S&P 500 Vs. the CPI

Here’s a look at the S&P 500 versus the CPI. I’ve scaled the graph so the lines meet at the market’s peak in 2000.

You can see that even after this historic rally, prices still haven’t kept pace with inflation. Sorry bears, ain’t no bubble. Now 2000, that was a bubble.


The S&P 500 needs to get near 2,100 to reach a new inflation-adjusted high.
