The Bottom Line

'Tis the season for the TSX 60 Index and its related ETF: XIU.TO to move higher and to outperform the S&P 500 Index from December 14th to March 7th! Both currently are lower from their close on December 14th, but both have nicely outperformed the S&P 500 on schedule.




Analysis of the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index ETF (TSE:XIU.TO) seasonal charts shows that a Buy Date of December 14 and a Sell Date of March 7 has resulted in a geometric average return of 2.43% above the benchmark rate of the S&P 500 Total Return Index over the past 20 years. This seasonal timeframe has shown positive results compared to the benchmark in 16 of those periods. This is a very good rate of success and the return strongly outperforms the relative buy-and-hold performance of the stock over the past 20 years by an average of 4.08% per year.
