Are We Heading For Another September Crisis… One Day Late?

Are we headed for another September Crisis?

In general the period from May until November is a time for market underperformance. The average performance for the period from May 1 through October 31 each year since 1950 is just 1.2%. The average performance for the other six months of the year (November 1 through April 30) each year since 1950 is 7.0%

Historically, September is has been the single worst month for stocks over the last 80 years. Since 1929, on average the S&P 500 has fallen 1.1% in September.

This is only one of three months to have an average negative return over this period. And it is the single worst month of the year (the other two are May with an average return of -0.1% and February with an average return of  -0.2%).

Moreover, it is the Autumn when banking and financial crises have a tendency to occur. In terms of specific months, September and October are the worst with issues that lead up crashes erupting in September with October being when the actual crashes finally hit. There were Crashes during these months in 1907, 1929, 1987, and 2008.

All told, there have been a total of 147 crises since 1970 in the world. September accounted for 27 of them, the single largest month.

For certain stocks are definitively in a bubble. Based simply on CAPE (cyclical adjusted price to earnings) the market is significantly overvalued with a reading of nearly 24 (anything over 15 is overvalued).

Indeed, we’ve only been at this level of valuation during major stock tops (1929, 1966, 2000, and 2007)

Now we have the Government potentially shutting down. The markets are open on Monday which will be the last day in September.

Are we going to get another September Crisis a day late?
