An Example of Strong Single Stock Seasonality

Many individual stocks exhibits phases of seasonal strength. Being invested in these phases is therefore an especially promising strategy.

 

Danish drug company Novo Nordisk

 

Today I want to introduce you to a stock that tends to advance particularly strongly at this time of the year: Novo Nordisk. The Danish pharmaceutical group supplies a broad range of products and is a global market leader in diabetes drugs.

 

Novo Nordisk exhibits a brief, but very strong seasonal phase

Take a look at the seasonal chart of Novo Nordisk below. This is not a standard price chart showing prices moves over a specific time period. Rather, the seasonal chart depicts the average price pattern of Novo Nordisk in the course of a calendar year over the past 10 years.

 

Novo Nordisk, seasonal pattern over the past 10 years. The stock typically rallies particularly strongly in mid February

 

I have highlighted the especially strong seasonal phase from February 11 to February 22 in blue. In this time period Novo Nordisk displays a particularly strong seasonal advance.

 

A gain of 495.78 percent annualized!

Over the past 10 years Novo Nordisk rose in every single year in this phase. In other words, the pattern had a hit rate of 100 percent. The average gain achieved in these mere eight trading days amounted to 5.01 percent. This corresponds to an extremely strong annualized gain of 495.78 percent!

The following bar chart shows the pattern return for the time period February 11 to February 22 in every single year since 2010.

 

Novo Nordisk, percentage return of the seasonal rally between Feb. 11 and Feb. 22 in every year since 2010. The stock rallied in every year under review.

 

As this chart confirms, in the past ten years prices indeed rose over these eight trading days in every single year. The largest gain achieved in 2015 amounted to 11.46 percent!

In my opinion such large seasonal gains in such a short time period represent a phenomenal opportunity. The appeal of investing in particularly strong seasonal phases and thus significantly increasing the chance of generating extraordinary returns should be obvious.

 

Take advantage of single stock seasonality!

As you can see, individual stocks exhibit their very own seasonal patterns which often include very attractive phases of strength. On our web page www.app.seasonax.com or alternatively on the Seasonax app at Bloomberg or Thomson-Reuters Eikon, promising seasonal patterns of thousands of individual shares are waiting to be discovered!

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.
