Q: I realize that markets can be somewhat unpredictable at best sometimes but I see some commentators who say that fall through to spring is a good period for some commodities per se. I try not to invest or trade based on these notions but rather on the merits of a company and 5I advice. However I noted once that 5I had a comment that August/September seemed to be a good period for technology stocks. Does this seem to be a general trend
Thank You for Your great service

5i Research Answer:

The 4Q is usually good for tech stocks due to 'budget flush' where companies spend all of their IT budgets in the final quarter so their budgets are not reduced the following year. It is not a perfect indicator but can be useful. Much also depends on the market: often, in the fourth quarter fund managers will also buy more of the 'winning' stocks of the year so at year end it looks to their investors like the knew what they were doing
