$SPY – Here are the recent historical returns of the stock market during the last year of a President.
1980 32.40% Jimmy Carter
1988 16.80% Ronald Reagan
1992 7.70% George HW Bush
2000 -9.10% Bill Clinton
2008 -37.00% George W Bush
2016 ??? Barack Obama
Nothing to do based on this. But interesting.
There was the end of the internet bubble and subsequent recession that happened during Clinton’s last year.
George W Bush was hit with the collapse of the housing bubble, and the loans made to people who had no chance of every making monthly payments.
Are we in a bubble now? Bonds? Real estate? Stocks? All of the above?
