Here's What Usually Happens to Stocks in Years Like 2016
Despite the huge comeback in the S&P 500, investors remain skeptical of the bull rally. If history is any guide, they shouldn't be so worried.
I could not agree more. In fact, I've done my own research looking back at all the years like 2016.
In order to find years like 2016, I first eliminated all years when the yield on the 3-month treasury bill was higher than the current 0.19% and all years when the yield on the 30-year treasury bond was higher than the current 2.66%.
I then eliminated all years that were not election years. I then eliminated all election years when the Democratic front runner wasn't a former first lady with a history of email server problems. I then eliminated all election years when the Republican front runner wasn't a billionaire who starred in a reality television game show and had ties to the casino industry. I then eliminated all election years when both the front runners didn't have justifiably historically high disapproval ratings simultaneously. I then eliminated all years when both candidates didn't love waterboarding as a means of torture.
I then eliminated all years when the US government was running a budget surplus and our country was running a trade surplus. I then eliminated all years when the typical toaster was not made in China.
I then eliminated all years when the bull market in stocks was not at least seven years old. I then eliminated all years when the stock market had not at least tripled during that bull market.
I then eliminated all years when Sears published a Wish Book. I then eliminated all years when I would not have been able to create this blog post with my phone, the same phone I also use to buy stuff on the internet without ever having to talk to an actual human retail salesperson.
I then eliminated all years without a Patriot Act and all years without a Department of Homeland Security.
And do you know what I found? Not once in our country's history has the stock market done poorly in years just like 2016. Not once. That's why you should be as optimistic as I am. And if that isn't enough proof, just check out my horoscope.
