The Russell 2000 last month reached a valuation of 10.8 times its members’ annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That was the highest since at least 1995 and compares with an average weekly ratio of 7.7 times Ebitda, the data show. The valuation was at 10.2 at the end of last week.
