Worried about US equities? Here's an alternative!

I have a suggestion for value oriented investors who are uncomfortable with my market blow-off thesis for US equities (see How to get in on the ground floor of a market bubble and Get ready for the melt-up). What about buying Europe?

Valuation metrics for European stocks are certainly cheaper. The SP 500 trades at a price to book ratio of 2.7 and forward P/E 18.4. By contrast, FTSE Europe trades at a P/B of 1.6 and forward P/E of 15.9 and the Euro Stoxx 50 trades at a P/B of 1.3 and forward P/E of 13.5.
