January effect

• Is the tendency for small capitalization stocks to exhibit an upward bias in their price behavior. Some analysts believe that this may be partially attributable to the influence of index funds buying stocks for various retirement plans. Such new contributions would be qualified to commence in January. Also, the marginal impact of such purchases would be greater on smaller capitalization issues as opposed to larger capitalization stocks.
