Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers from everyone here at Birinyi Associates. While we're all thankful for the market's gains this year, if history is any guide, we'll be even more appreciative when we ring in the New Year.

As the table below highlights, the S&P 500 usually rallies on both the day after Thanksgiving and the period from Thanksgiving through year end. In fact, in over 75% of the years since 1952, the S&P 500 has gone up the day after Thanksgiving, and from Thanksgiving through the end of the year, gains have occurred 63% of the time.
