Despite this fact, the financials still remain above this level, which also corresponds to the 2011 top, and the outlook hasnt changed here.

Even Mr. Siegel uses in his analysis a figure that is an important component of my analysis that real GDP growth, on a year-over-year basis, will continue, over the next five years or so, to grow only in the 2.0 percent to 2.5 percent range. Siegel introduces this figure in determining his estimate of the real interest rate. He writes, Real interest rates (and hence yields on inflation-linked Treasury bonds) are strongly tied to GDP growth and if the “new normal” growth pessimists are right, real interest rates are unlikely to rise above 2.0 percent.” Note: that all Siegel’s further analysis that supports his position that the stock market is not overvalued hinges on this assumption of 2.0 percent growth of real GDP. In my analysis, if real GDP only grows by 2.0 percent over the next five years or so, current levels of earnings cannot be sustained.
