Profits to support the stock indexes

I am trying to figure out if there are published ratios of value of common stock market indexes (Dow Jones, NASDAQ, S&P 500) and the profits generated by the companies that define them.

For the Dow Jones, it is probably easier to find because it is only 30 companies.

Maybe it is already in the indicators, but I can't find it in the help page.

Is this ratio available?

It appears to me that as long there are profits, those index will stand, otherwise...

Are you talking just about profits in nominal terms or are you, perhaps, talking about the price of the market relative to profits(earnings)?

I got my answer. I learnt that I was talking about the P/E ratio.





My opinion is that the market is still over-evaluated by 20-30%.

At current 20.42, you can't achieve a yield of 10% unless there is speculation, right?
