Q&A by Don Bright
Are you aware of any actual study on seasonal tendencies among stock sectors? I’ve heard the general market “sell in May and go away” and “buy
tech stocks in the fall and sell in the spring” clichés, but I wonder what the facts are. I’ve heard that airline stocks are seasonal, for example. There are probably other generalities, which may or may not be rooted in fact. — Steve Butler
There are many adages in the stocktrading world, and yes, most are true — some of the time. I suggest you pick up a copy of the Hirsch Organization’s Stock Trader’s Almanac, which is a tool I find very helpful. There you will find considerable information about monthly seasonality and other time-related topics.
