Is QQQ Overvalued Or Undervalued?

QQQ is generally perceived as tilting very heavily towards Tech Growth. Though many investors believe you can't use traditional valuation metrics to assess Tech Growth, I disagree. Invesco's valuation metrics don't include average 5-year EPS growth, a metric that is particularly useful when valuing mature but still aggressively growing stocks like those that dominate QQQ. We look at how the average 5 year EPS growth rate relates to P/E of the many QQQ stocks with 5+ years of earnings. We also look at how the current price of QQQ stocks compares to analysts' 5-year price targets. Valuation is a useful tool but must be used with caution, as crowd sentiment plays such a strong role in QQQ's pricing.

TQQQ: A Subtle Way Holding Long Can Go Wrong

TQQQ can underperform QQQ even if QQQ rises in the long run. This happens in volatile markets where volatility decay eats away at TQQQ returns. While most TQQQ investors primarily fear a bear market, volatility decay during bull markets accounts for a significant portion of TQQQ underperformance.

QQQ: Valuations Are High But Long-Term Holders Should Be Comfortable

While tech stock valuations appear high, QQQ is probably not in bubble territory. Given the high return on equity that the QQQ portfolio generates, the long-term IRR is likely to remain safely strong and positive. So, long-term buy-and-hold investors should be comfortable with holding QQQ, although admittedly there are valuation risks brewing for a correction of perhaps 10-20% in the medium term. Equally probable, however, is a situation in which we see a "flat market" with low volatility, as earnings pick up and "catch up" with valuations. I would therefore be optimistically neutral at present, but would not be pressed to sell, especially while monetary policy remains as accommodative as it is at present.

QQQ: Borrowing From The Future

The QQQ's parabolic advance will undoubtedly come at the expense of dismal future returns. A dramatic increase in transfer payments and restrictions on the kind of spending that consumers have been able to engage in have led to an unsustainable boom in Nasdaq sales. The current high personal savings rate belies the ongoing decline in national savings which will come at the expense of future real GDP and consumption growth. With a dividend yield of just 0.7%, investors are likely to have to wait decades before the Nasdaq 100 offers a reasonable dividend yield.
