A theory that the current methods of valuing stock are wrong and that the true value of the Dow Jones Industrial Average is still undervalued, and is moving towards 36000. Proponents of this theory (James Glassman and Kevin Hassett) decry the use of the P/E ratio as outdated and that the current bull market is not in fact a mass delusion a la tulipmania. Detractors suggest that Glassman and Hassett are math-impaired wishful thinkers who are trying to rationalize the current bull market.
