Bespoke’s Stock Seasonality Tool allows users to easily look up seasonal performance for US and international stock markets, individual stocks, and every asset class (through widely traded ETFs). When you visit the tool, it immediately shows you the S&P 500’s median change over the next week, month, and three months based on the last ten years worth of trading.
Below is a snapshot of a chart we pulled from the tool today showing historical sector performance for the remainder of May. The chart shows the median change that each S&P 500 sector has experienced from the close on May 11th through the close on May 31st over the last 12 years.
As shown, the S&P 500 as a whole has historically posted a median gain of 0.48% from May 11th through May 31st. That’s pretty good. But there has been quite a bit of disparity when it comes to the performance of various sectors during this time of the year.
The last 20 days of May have been a great time for the Technology and Materials sectors, which have both posted median gains of more than 1%, but it has been a rough time of the year for Financials and Industrials, which have both posted median declines of more than 0.75% over the same time frame.
