…November been the second-best month in the S&P 500 since 1950, the bestinvesting-hold-buy-sell month for the Russell 1000 and third best for the DJIA since 1950 and for NASDAQ since its launch in 1971…In election years since 1952, November has been the #1 month in the DJIA and #2 for the S&P. As such, early November provides investors with an especially good time to accumulate quality stocks.

In the last 20 years (as this Bespoke chart shows), November is second only to April in market gains.

Expanding out to the next six months, November marks the beginning of the S&P 500’s best six months.

In the first six years of this bull market, the November-April half-year segment outpaced the May-to-October months.  This is not to say I align with the “Sell in May and Go Away” crowd.  After all, that trend reversed over the 12 months, with May-to-October winning.  What these data mean, to me, is that early November provides investors with an especially good time to accumulate quality stocks.
