While not scientific or fundamental in any way, the Super Bowl Indicator is a fun way to analyze the outcome. Even though there's no way the Super Bowl can affect the market, people have been looking for signs from the game to predict how the stock market will perform in the following 11 months. The Super Bowl Indicator stats look even better with an Eagles win (as would my family's mood), but let's review the silver lining of a Chiefs win: * When a former champion returns (both teams) and wins the Super Bowl, the average market return is 13.3%. * The market loves when the Chiefs are in the championship. With both their wins in 1970 & 2020 and their losses in 1967 & 2021, the S&P 500 Index returned an average of 18.7%. * When the combined score is 46 points or more (73), the stock market jumps 15.9% on average. * When the game (LVII) or year (2023) is an odd number, the average market return that year is 16.2%. * The market saw an average return of 13.5% after the 37 Super Bowl games played at open-air stadiums or open retractable roofs. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Again, this is a fun way to look at statistics with absolutely no link to stock market fundamentals. Market Loves When Chiefs Win, Super Bowl Indicator Does Not (https://www.forbes.com/sites/lcarrel/2023/02/10/market-loves-when-chiefs-win-but-super-bowl-indicator-does-not/?sh=6c84fe1d13c7) by Lawrence Carrel ** Your Life ------------------------------------------------------------ Valentine’s Day is this week. Chocolate reflects the terroir (all the factors that give an ingredient from a particular place a particular flavor) where it’s grown. For example, chocolate expert, Kim Hack, writes chocolate from Madagascar often has citrusy notes; from Venezuela, it may taste of red fruit; Belize of fudge; and Ecuador of slightly floral flavors. Many small farmers grow organic cocoa but can’t afford the certification required to use that term on food labels. Chocolate is derived from the seeds of the cacao tree, also called cocoa beans. Eating dark chocolate with high cocoa content can deliver antioxidants and minerals and may protect you from heart disease. However, as with everything, eat in moderation because chocolate can be high in sugar and calories. 7 Proven Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate (https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/7-health-benefits-dark-chocolate) by Kris Gunnars https://www.linkedin.com/in/danheth/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/rosalynn-harvey-heth-mpa-ceps-3a3aa3191/ ** Complexity Simplified ------------------------------------------------------------ Want to save a little money on groceries? Rather than creating a weekly menu and making a list of groceries you need, start a different way. Look at the ads of one or two local grocery stores, then make your menu and purchases based on what is on sale. It may even allow you to think outside the box and create new meals that you had never thought of. ** Trivia ------------------------------------------------------------ A: Budweiser Q: Which fashion designer was shot dead in the summer of 1997? https://youtu.be/7SXKHiPQPhk ** Back in 1998, this song reached #1 ------------------------------------------------------------ ============================================================ ** Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/preservewm) ** Twitter (https://twitter.com/preservewm) ** LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/preservewm/about/) Copyright © *|CURRENT_YEAR|* *|LIST:COMPANY|*, All rights reserved.
