Happy New Year!

How to use the Q1 Seasonality Database:

Helpful tips:

·         The data is broken out in tabs along the bottom (e.g. ETFs, Universe, etc).  Simply click on each tab to display the data.
·         The far left tab is our "Search" tab.  Enter stock symbols to compare against each other, or compare against benchmark ETFs.
·         Within other tabs, pressing the control key and F key at the same time activates excel's search feature.
·         Use the "Data" ribbon in excel (along the top row of functions) to sort by sector, industry, etc.
·         The "filter" feature in data also provides you with sort options.
