Chart of the Day: 19 Good to Only 3 Bad

Samuel A. Kiburz Jan 9, 2024
S&P 500 from 1950 - 2022, good in green, bad in red


Today’s Chart of the Day was sourced by my Crews Bank & Trust colleague Jackson Garner, Trust Relationship Associate. The chart is from YCharts, an investment monitoring software we use. It shows the returns of the S&P 500 for the last 72 years, illustrating down years around a third of the time, and positive years two thirds of the time. Notably, the curve skews to the positive side with 19 of those years having 20% or more in gains, while only three years have losses of 20% or more.
