The Markets

Stocks drifted lower on Wednesday as investors monitored the vote on the US debt ceiling while they conducted end-of-month portfolio re-balancing trades.  The S&P 500 Index closed down by six-tenths of one percent, ending back below the pivotal 4200 level that the broader market has been scrutinizing as a level of resistance.  A short-term divergence between price and momentum over the past month and a half remains apparent, failing to confirm the new multi-month highs charted in recent days.  Support remains apparent at the congestion of major moving averages between 4000 and 4100, a zone that continues to keep this grind higher in prices afloat.  The sustainability of the recent strength is certainly in questionable given the lack of breadth, the ongoing degradation in macro economic fundamentals, and the lack-lustre seasonal tendencies (particularly for the month of June) and caution in risk (stocks), generally, remains prudent.

With the new month upon us and as we celebrate the release of our monthly report for June, today we release our screen of all of the stocks that have gained in every June over their trading history. While we at Equity Clock focus on a three-pronged approach (seasonal, technical, and fundamental analysis) to gain exposure to areas of the market that typically perform well over intermediate (2 to 6 months) timeframes, we know that stocks that have a 100% frequency of success for a particular month is generally of interest to those pursuing a seasonal investment strategy. Below are the results:

And how about those securities that have never gained in this sixth month of the year, here they are:

*Note: None of the results highlighted above have the 20 years of data that we like to see in order to accurately gauge the annual recurring, seasonal influences impacting an investment, therefore the reliability of the results should be questioned.  We present the above list as an example of how our downloadable spreadsheet available to yearly subscribers can be filtered.

Sentiment on Wednesday, as gauged by the put-call ratio, ended bearish at 1.04.
