Year-to-date, through April 30, 2021, the S&P Equal Weight 500 jumped 16.2%, recording the third-strongest four-month start to any year since 1990 (when the index was first introduced). How has such a strong start to the year translated to the market's subsequent performance? History says (but does not guarantee), that such early strength is typically followed by a volatile performance through September, before resuming its above-average advance during the remaining three months of the year. Will the same hold true for 2021? Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA, will discuss this and other favorable indicators and share his market and sector outlooks the rest of this year.
As chief investment strategist, Sam Stovall serves as analyst, publisher, and communicator of CFRA's outlooks for the economy, market, and sectors. He focuses on market history and valuations, as well as industry momentum strategies. Mr. Stovall is the author of The Seven Rules of Wall Street and writes weekly Sector Watch and Investment Policy Committee meeting notes on CFRA's MarketScope Advisor platform. His work is also found in CFRA's flagship weekly newsletter The Outlook.
