Chart of the Week: NYSE Seats versus S&P500

The current prices that are being paid for NYSE seats are much higher
than they have been relative to the S&P500.

If the historical
relationship remains relatively stable, than one of two outcomes is
implied:  either the S&P500 is very undervalued relative to the
seats – or the seats are being overpaid for.

Will the historical pattern hold up, or does the recent merger alter the relationship? It is possible that the NYSE/Archipelago deal is skewing the value of NYSE seats.
