So one should be easily be able to identify about 10 DOW stocks (out of 50) that need to drop by approx 60% to reach fair value ?

Here is the data for DOW 30 and PE

PE if you exclude AA is 16.8 * AA has a very high PE so skewing the data
PE for 30 companies is 20.8
PE if you exclue AA, T and VZ is 14.5

I cannot find any company that need to fall by 60% to reach fair value. Needless to say, no one will call IBM way overvalued given that WEB was a buyer at $170+.

Note: We are trying to find companies that are highly highly overvalued (not slightly overvalued) - something that should jump out
