Warren Buffett’s Go-To Market Indicator Signals Playing With Fire

market crash

Some of the most successful business moguls of our time, those whose names will undoubtedly go down in the history books, are trying to warn the American people of trouble ahead.

Starting with the legendary investor himself, the one with over a $100 billion net worth, Mr. Warren Buffett– believes that anyone buying stocks right now is ‘playing with fire.’

Buffett is so well revered that he even has a stock market indicator named after him.

The ‘Buffett Indicator’ combines the market capitalization of all actively traded US stocks and divides it by the latest quarterly gross domestic product numbers.

In simpler terms, it measures the growth of the stock market vs. the growth of the economy. This lets us know if it is under or overvalued.

Right now, the Buffett Indicator climbed to 211%, meaning the stock market is overvalued, to say the least.

Buffet considers this indicator to be “probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.”

The gauge is so high that analysts are sounding the alarm on US stocks, signaling a crash may be coming.

Of course, although no one is always right, and Buffett himself has had his fair share of wrong calls over his vast career, there are other billionaires who are sharing similar feelings.

Michael Burry, who gained the world’s attention after successfully shorting what was practically the top of the 2008 market and raking in over $700 million for his clients and $100 million for himself, is now predicting another epic market crash is in our near future.

Veteran and renowned investor Jeremy Grantham went on to state in an interview:

“When you have reached this level of obvious super-enthusiasm, the bubble has always, without exception, broken in the next few months, not a few years.”

Mr. Wonderful himself, Kevin O’Leary, O’Leary Funds chief, and star of the famous investment show “Shark Tank,” also believes that we are headed for a crash; however, he feels that it may be a great ‘educational lesson’ for investors.

“The generation that is trading right now has never gone through a sustained correction. It’s coming— I don’t know when, I don’t know what’ll trigger it, but they will learn their lesson.”

While only time will tell whether we are indeed in a massive ‘everything market bubble’ or not, these billionaires are… well… billionaires for a reason.

It’s not a bad idea to be prepared for unexpected market downturns and keep your hard-earned money safe.
