  • On the other side of the valuation spectrum, much-maligned Cyprus ranks at the top of the charts with a market P/E of 34.7. That's hardly surprising, considering Cyprus' precipitous plummet in 2013; this isn't a country to invest in under any valuation or occasion right now. Cyprus would rank below Bank of America (NYSE: BAC ) for the fourth-highest valuation on the Dow if it were a member of the blue-chip index.

    Bank of America, however, is performing quite well -- unlike Cyprus. The big bank has managed to turn things around since the depths of the recession by strengthening its capital position, ditching non-core assets, and doing its best to rebuild its reputation. Its high valuation has been justified by its 28% gain over the past six months alone. That kind of performance can't be said of Cyprus, which has become the poster child of everything wrong with Europe's economy.
