While we don’t ever suggest that investors should base their trading solely on the calendar, there is evidence that the market and many stocks do indeed follow seasonal patterns. This makes our S&P 500 Stock Seasonality report a useful addition to every investor’s toolbox. Using the last ten years worth of price data, our Stock Seasonality report looks at the average returns for the S&P 500, its ten sectors, and its 500 individual stocks. In the report, we highlight the five stocks in each sector that have historically been the best and worst performers over the next two weeks. For each stock, we also include information such as average returns, the percent of time each stock or sector is positive/outperforms the S&P 500, and its historical performance over the next two weeks for each of the last ten years. The Stock Seasonality report is published on a weekly basis on Mondays, and it is available to all Bespoke Premium and Bespoke Institutional subscribers.
One section of the Stock Seasonality report that we wanted to highlight this week is the one where we highlight the fifteen stocks in the S&P 500 that have historically performed the best during the upcoming two-week period. The table below shows this week’s section with three of the names that made the list showing. As shown, homebuilders Pulte (PHM), Lennar (LEN), and DR Horton (DHI) have all seen median gains during the upcoming two-week period ranging from 4.36% up to 8.24%. So, even though the late December/early January period is probably one of the worst times of year to be outside building a house, for the stocks of homebuilders, it has been a great time of year!
For active traders, our Stock Seasonality report is an excellent tool keep track of the best and worst times of year for the overall market, sectors, and individual stocks. To see the report, sign up for a monthly Bespoke Premium membership now!
