Market Statistics...Updated

Last April I updated some key market statistics, as well as taking
a look at big moments in Wall Street History. Much of this is a
repeat, but there are a few new tidbits you won''t easily find
elsewhere, least of all in one place. Print it and save!

Dow Jones

Best year: 1915...+81.7%
Worst year: 1931...-53.7%

1929 Crash

Dow Jones peaked on September 3, 1929 at 381.
October 28...260
October 29...230
April 17, 1930...Dow closes at 294. What''s the big deal?
July 8, 1932...Dow closes at 41.22. Oh. Just your basic 90%
decline from the 9/3/29 peak.

Bear Market of 1973-74

Dow Jones peaked on 1/11/73...1051
Dow bottoms on 12/6/74...577. A decline of 45%.

Dow 1,000

The Dow Jones first crossed the 1,000 level, intra-day, two times
in each of January and February 1966. But the average didn''t
close above 1,000 until November 11, 1972.

Crash of 1987

The Dow Jones peaked on August 25, 1987 at 2722.
As of October 5, the Dow was still at 2640. Then...
Tuesday, Oct. 13...Dow closes at 2508, up 37 points.
Wednesday, Oct. 14...Dow 2412
Thursday, Oct. 15...Dow 2355
Friday, Oct. 16...Dow 2246...uh oh.
Monday, Oct. 19...Dow closes at 1738, intra-day low was 1677.

*The scariest day, however, was probably Tuesday, Oct. 20,
when the Dow hit 1616 before rallying (thanks to the Fed) to
close at 1841. But, only about 200 issues on the NYSE rose that
day, as there were legitimate fears of a total financial breakdown.
Nasdaq fell 9% that Tuesday.

Returns for the decade of the.

60s - Dow Jones +17.8% (not including dividends)

Amazon.com 12/9/99 $113
Cisco 3/27/00 $82
Ciena 10/20/00 $151

Dell 3/22/00 $60
EMC 9/25/00 $105

Nortel 7/25/00 $89
Oracle 9/1/00 $46
Sun Micro 9/1/00 $65
Yahoo 1/4/00 $250

As Bond King William Gross once said, "Today''s winning
technology is tomorrow''s sinkhole."

Seasonality

This simply cannot be ignored. Most of you know that since
1950, investing in the market from November 1 - April 30 yields
far superior returns than being in the market only from May 1 -
October 31. In the 2002 edition of Yale Hirsch''s "Stock
Trader''s Almanac," he spells it out accordingly.

For the S&P 500, if you invested $10,000 back in 1950:

May 1 - Oct. 31 would have grown to only $11,408. But...
Nov. 1 - Apr. 30 would have yielded $314,056!

However, Mr. Hirsch was not able to add in the 5/1/01-10/31/01
period due to publication deadlines. Well, I was checking my
own stats and the S&P 500 fell 15.2% during that stretch
(1249.46 to 1059.78); meaning that the compounded return on
the S&P 500 is now around $9,670.down since 1950! [And, as
of this writing, the S&P 500 has rebounded nicely since 10/31,
thus, once again, confirming the seasonality factor.]

Note: The above figures were collected from various sources
(including Ibbotson Associates) and are deemed to be accurate.

*Due to time constraints, I am unable to honor any individual
requests for market data.
