So Far So Good – 2012 following election year pattern fairly closely

 The S&P 500 is up 10% year to date – which is a better than average year although you wouldn’t know it by the sentiment measures.  The following chart from Bespoke Investment Group overlays this year’s performance with a composite of all Presidential election years since 1928.  The inference from the prior pattern is that the S&P 500 could end the year up almost 20%!  Are we in a “stealth bull market”?  Jeb Terry, Sr. July 30, 2012

Note that the S&P 500 is measured on the right axis.  Courtesy of Bespoke Investment Group
