The Flip Side of Sell in May and Go Away
On this week’s podcast (recorded November 20, 2018), Tim discusses the often used Wall Street adage “sell in May and go away,” which cleverly lets the listener know that returns provided by US equities have historically exhibited a seasonal pattern.
- US equities have historically exhibited a seasonal pattern, with the months of May, June, July, August, September and October underperforming the months of November, December, January, February, March and April.
- So far this November, historical patterns haven’t held with the S&P 500; as of this recording, off about 1% on a total return basis month to date.
- Seasonal patterns aside, we remain constructive on US equities.
