Groundhog Day Shadows the Stock Market
Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil appeared from his burrow Thursday, casting a shadow and predicting six more weeks of winter. Could this furry weather prognosticator also forecast the stock market performance?
In the last 10 years, stocks fell 70 percent of the time six-weeks after Phil made an apperance, with the S&P 500 index posting an average loss of 1.8 percent.
Similarly, the Dow fell during those periods — 60 percent of the time — with an average loss of 1.4 percent.
