Valuations of Asian shares surged to an 11-year high in November, as COVID-19 vaccine hopes raised expectations for a faster recovery in regional economies. The MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares gained 10.2% last month, lifting its forward 12-month price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) to 16.7 at the end of November, the highest since October 2009. Similarly, the MSCI's World index gained 12.2% last month and its forward P/E touched a three-month high of 19.67.

"The current P/E and price-to-book ratio (P/B) are cheaper than the levels coming out of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC)," Credit Suisse's Fineman said. India, Australia and Indonesia shares were the most expensive in the region, with P/E ratios of 21.7, 18.3 and 18.2, respectively, data showed.
