The US stock market has been weak and in a downtrend since late 2021, and there are some individual names that haven’t been able to post a positive month in quite some time. Of all S&P 1500 members, there are actually eight stocks with a market cap of at least $2 billion that are on a monthly losing streak of seven or more months. Six of these eight names are members of the Consumer Discretionary sector (the worst performing sector on a YTD basis), which is down 27.8% in 2022 (as of Friday’s close). The largest company on this list is Nike (NKE), which reports after the close today. The stock would need to gain about 7.5% through the end of the month to break its seven month losing streak. The average stock on this list would need to gain 6.7% through the close on 6/31 to break their respective streaks. Etsy (ETSY) is the closest to breaking its streak, needing to gain just 0.9%, while Under Armour (UAA) is the furthest, needing 13.7%. On a YTD basis, these stocks are down an average of 41.4% (median: -35.0%), meaning they would need to gain ~70% through year’s end to finish 2022 in the green.
Below is a quick look at one-year price charts for these eight stocks. (You can click here to create a custom portfolio of these names if you’re a Bespoke client.) Unsurprisingly, these stocks on 7+ month losing streaks are trading in pretty steep long-term downtrends, and they’ve got a lot of work to do to get back to where they were trading late last year. New uptrends can’t emerge until these long monthly losing streaks finally come to an end. Click here to learn more about Bespoke’s premium stock market research service.
