Low-Frequency Waves and the Medium to Long-Term US Stock Market Outlook
AbstractIn this paper we provide compelling evidence of cyclical mean reversion and multiperiod stock return predictability over horizons of about 30 years with a half-life of about 15 years. This implies that the US stock market follows a long-term rhythm where a period of above average returns tends to be followed by a period of below average returns. We demonstrate that this long-term stock market rhythm moves in lockstep with corresponding long-term economic, social, and political rhythms in the US. Assuming that the past relationship between these rhythms will hold unaltered in the future, we provide the medium to long-term stock market outlook.
