When it comes to the World Cup, Brazil has won the championship more than any other nation, and the host country is also the most-favored team to win this year, according to a global survey of 120 analysts polled by Reuters.
But winning the World Cup does not seem to have much impact on the country's domestic index in the long run.
"Initially, whichever country wins the tournament sees a sugar high in their domestic stock market. The majority of the initial boost typically fades after three months and the winning nation normally underperforms the global market average by about 4 percent throughout the year following the World Cup," said Leigh Drogen, founder and CEO of research firm Estimize.
This is the second time Brazil is hosting the World Cup.
The country previously hosted in 1950 when Uruguay won against Brazil in the finals. That year U.S. indexes finished up more than 17 percent.
Global consumer brands such as Coca-Cola, Johnson and Johnson, McDonald's and Visa are some of the sponsors for this year's event.
