Prediction: Dow Will Close 2005 at 11,958.36

Posted: September 8, 2005 in Uncategorized
Here’s another great 10-year cycle:  The Phenomenal "5’s".
 
It seems that the stock market has absolutely killer performance in years ending in "5".
 
Check it out:
 

     Year    Dow Jones   Yr/Yr
               Close    Change
 

     1905:     96.20     38.2%

     1915:     99.15     81.7%
     1925:    156.66     30.0%
     1935:    144.13     38.5%
     1945:    192.91     26.6%
     1955:    488.40     20.8%
     1965:    969.26     10.9%
     1975:    852.41     38.3%
     1985:   1546.67     27.7%
     1995:   5117.12     33.5%
 
             Average:    34.6%
 
Hmmm.  The data would suggest that there is either something financially critical and all-important about mid-decades… or researchers have too much time on their hands.
 
Far be it from me to question this kind of data!
 
Since the Dow Jones Average Y-T-D is down about 1.4%, looks like we’re going to have quite a ride in the next 3 months and 3 weeks just to reach the low water mark. <smile>
