MARKET UPDATES

Stock market often ends higher even in volatile years

Stock market returns are likely to turn negative at some point in any given year. Some declines are short-lived, while others may last the entire year.

But did you know that in the years since 1980, the stock market has ended in positive territory 76% of the time?

To see how this tendency has played out, the chart below shows the calendar year performance of the S&P 500® Index in green and the largest period of downward performance within each calendar year in red. 

Intra-year decline refers to the maximum drawdown or the largest market drop from a peak to a trough within a calendar year, based on the daily price index.

In the years since 1980, the stock market has ended in positive territory 76% of the time.

In other words, if you stick to your portfolio during volatile periods, you may be able to avoid missing out on the long-term potential of the market. That’s why it may be beneficial to take this broader view of market history when considering your long-term investment goals.


The S&P 500® Index is a market-cap weighted index that represents the average performance of a group of 500 large-capitalization stocks.

Results shown assume reinvestment of dividends or interest.

Any indexes shown are unmanaged and do not reflect the typical costs of investing. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
