Today the DAX has reached a 20% return since its February lows. Therefore entering what is known as a bull market. It is also trading at a price/earnings ratio of 23.87 with a dividend yield of 2.90. Whether that is cheap or not I will leave to the pro stock pickers. That dividend yield is the be all and end all as to why we are have entered this bull market.
