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 eleven 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 stock that we wanted to highlight this week is Wynn Resorts (WYNN). As if things weren’t bad enough for the company given the controversies surrounding Steve Wynn, the stock is also now entering what has historically been one of the weakest times of the year for the stock. As shown in the chart below, WYNN has traded lower during the upcoming two-week period in six of the last ten years for a median decline of 5.3%. That makes it the worst performing stock for the upcoming two-week period in the S&P 500.
For active traders, our Stock Seasonality report is an excellent tool to help keep track of the best and worst times of year for the overall market, sectors, and individual stocks.
