This weekend, millions of American’s will sit back, eat a ton of chicken wings, drown themselves in some of the nation’s finest macrobrewed beer, and watch one of the greatest sports spectacles of the year.
No, I don’t mean Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. I’m talking about the Super Bowl.
The championship game of the National Football League has become required viewing in America. And whether you watch it for the football, the half-time show, or just for the commercials, it seems that everyone will have their eyes glued to their flat-panel televisions.
But perhaps you should keep one eye on your investments at the same time since the Super Bowl and its outcome has been a pretty great predictor of just how stocks will fair throughout the new year.
The so-called “Super Bowl Indicator” is alive and well.
