The Speed


  • Dmitry Baryshevsky

    (Belarus Builder's Union, Minsk, Belarus)


The speed is one of the most important factors in development of any dynamic system. It is shown that since the end of the 19-th up to the middle of the 20-th centuries the average growth rate of earnings, dividends and S&P 500 index was 1.5% per year. In the second half of the 20-th century the average growth rate of dividend speed up to 5%, earnings up to 5.5% and S&P 500 up to 8% per year. The arisen divergence in the growth rate of earnings and S&P500 led to the essential growth of the earnings multiple P/E. At the same time, from the beginning of 70- th, the 10 year earnings variability has grown, practically, 3 times. Such situation can result in development of long-term stagnate sideways movement.
