q ratio

A measure of stockmarket valuation devised by James Tobin. Takes the total value of the stockmarket and divides it by corporate net worth. A high q shows that the market is overvalued and a low q shows that it is cheap. Andrew Smithers, an adviser to fund managers, is a leading exponent of q in the UK.
