Price – Earnings Ratio for the Lima Stock Exchange: Issues and Applications
AbstractIn this paper we construct a methodology to calculate the price-earnings ratio (PER) of the General Index of the Lima StockExchange (IGBVL) for the period 1995-2011 following Shiller (2005). Results show that equity prices, in the analyzedperiod, basically responded to the expected evolution of earnings of the companies, even during the period of the equity prices boom that preceded the financial crisis of 2008. This conclusion is reinforced when we calculate, following Hayford y Malliaris (2004), the implicit equity premia expected for stock investors. We find high values of equity premia during the period of stock prices boom, which would justify the high PER values registered in that period.
