According to Bloomberg, CLSA Ltd. strategist Russell Napier thinks so:
"While the 39 percent drop in the S&P this year pushed equity prices below replacement cost, history suggests the ratio must sink further as deflation sets in, he said. The S&P may plunge another 55 percent to a trough of 400 by 2014, the strategist said.
"Things have always looked absolutely terrible at the bottom," said Napier, Institutional Investor’s top-ranked Asia strategist from 1997-1999. With deflation "the value of assets falls and the value of debt stays up, then equity gets crushed. The results are always horrific.""
