Scottish Terriers and the Stock Market

February 18, 2010

Rocky fired up his X-22 Computer and discovered that when a Scottish Terrier wins Best of Show at the Westminster Kennel Club, it’s a bullish omen for the stock market.

Rocky submitted his remarkable findings to both Daily Speculations, (the website of Victor Niederhoffer) and to the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis.

Recognizing the importance of this seminal research, Daily Speculations immediately published the study. (Click Here.) In contrast, Rocky has not heard back from the editors of the JFQA.

[Disclosure: Despite their lack of stock market acumen, Rocky prefers “Westies” over Scotties. Remember also that Rocky does not provide investment advice. See: Disclaimer.]

    Jeff: One might expect a BULLdog to be bullish, but they are not as bullish as Scotty’s:

    1913 Bulldog -4.7%
    1918 Bull Terrier 18%
    1955 Bulldog 28%
    2006 Bull Terrier 15%

    Isn’t the real question which dog is responsible for the highest returns using a “Dogs of the Dow” strategy?

    Despite being snubbed by the JFQA, Fakename thinks Rocky may be onto something here and may in fact be ahead of his time. Thinks he should set the X-22 to calculate when the Puli or the Whippet will be named Best in Show–it’s a changing world.
