The SP500 (SPY) Intrinsic Value Index is only important when the price of the SP500 SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) is below as this level as it represents the price level attractive to Value Investors in past investment cycles. This is because when Value Investors such as Warren Buffett deem stock prices attractive it coincides with the SP500 long term mean earnings trend capitalized by the Prevailing Rate.

The Intrinsic Value Index is good for the period when global Value Investors use the US Real GDP + Inflation as the investing benchmark. This works only as long as the US remains a free market with inventors maintaining control of their property rights. If other countries have a faster growth rate and equal legal/political protections then, their Real GDP would begin to compete as the benchmark. I see the US Real GDP being the standard for a long time yet.
