Methodology
The Average P/E (μ) and the Standard Deviation (σ) are calculated excluding 20% outliers (i.e. over a range of values excluding 10% of observations from the top and 10% from the bottom of the dataset).
A P/E between (μ - σ) and (μ + σ) is considered "Fair", over a specific timeframe.
A P/E greater than (μ + σ) is defined "Overvalued", greater than (μ + 2σ) is defined "Expensive".
A P/E less than (μ - σ) is defined "Undervalued", less than (μ - 2σ) is defined "Cheap".
The Trend is considered positive if the ETF price is higher than the 200-day moving average (SMA).

Continents

An investor may prefer to invest in an entire continent or geographic area because it provides diversification and spread of risk.

Investing in a larger area, such as an entire continent, provides exposure to a broader range of markets and industries, reducing the impact of negative events in any one specific market.

Continent/Area with the highest P/E Ratio:
United States: 22.83
Continent/Area with the highest deviation vs 10Y Avg P/E:
All World: +3.44 σ
