This paper considers forecasting regressions of "realized volatility" on a misalignment measure defined by the temporary deviations from the common trend between the earning-price ratio and current inflation. Results show that this misalignment measure is useful to predict stock market volatility at monthly horizons. The analysis also suggests a threshold effect where only misalignments exceeding a certain level of overvaluation have a positive and significant impact on future volatility.
