In the third quarter, the best sectors for seasonal tailwinds in our seasonality database (as measured by ETFs) are healthcare and consumer staples. Historically, biotechnology has been the strongest performing industry, gaining ground in nine of the past 10 years and returning a median 6.36% in the quarter. It is also, however, among the most volatile industries with a standard deviation of 11.54%. Technology (software in particular) and utilities deserve honorable mentions for solid seasonality too. You'll also notice that bond ETFs are very strong (in keeping with the sell in May adage).
