History hints that due to a variety of milestones set earlier in the year - including the number of new all-time highs through February, the Q1 2021 low not eclipsing the December 2020 low, and a top-20 first half return for the S&P 500 Q4 2021 will likely record a higher-than&#8211;average full year return. Indeed, the S&P 500 typically saves the best for last. Whether looking at all years since 1945, or just first&#8211;year of the 16&#8211;quarter presidential cycle, the S&P 500 recorded its highest average price change in Q4, as well as its highest frequency of price gains.
