Prof. Aswath Damodaran on stock prices and the global economy
November 06, 2013
Excerpt from Associated Press -- "Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at New York University, says the trend is a global one. Many Indian companies have fared well even as India’s economy has slowed. The French luxury goods company LVMH did only a tenth of its sales in France in 2013. 'It used to be that US companies lived off the US economy and French stocks lived off the French economy,' Damodaran said. 'Now, stock markets are more reflections of the global economy.'"
