According to the Super Bowl theory, stocks will rise this year no matter which team wins. This is because both the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers trace their roots to the original National Football league. And this theory postulates that when a team from the old NFL wins, the stock market tends to go up.
Although Green Bay appears to be the early favorite to win the game, investors might be better off if Pittsburgh becomes the 2010 Super Bowl champs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen an average of 14% in the three years that the Packers won, while rising an average of 18.4% in the six years that the Steelers were victorious. This is a true dilemma for Baltimore Ravens fans.
Only time will tell…but…maybe time to test those toes in the equity markets!!!
