S&P 500 Index Performance in years ending in 7

Art Cashin mentioned this chart on CNBC yesterday. It implies that the S&P 500 Index in years ending in 7 peaks in late July, drops precipitously into late October and recovers thereafter to the end of the year. No recurring annual events were offered to explain the phenomenon. However, it is interesting to note that short and intermediate technical indicators in 2017 currently are overbought and showing early signs of rolling over.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a new all-time high milestone yesterday on a close above 22,000. The Average is price weighted, implying that higher priced stocks in the Average had a greater impact on its performance. According to a CNBC report last night, only six Dow Industrial Average stocks accounted for the last 1,000 points gain. Biggest contributors were Boeing, McDonalds, UnitedHealth and Apple.
