During bear markets, especially ones as severe as the current downturn, the obvious temptation for investors is to sell their stocks and take the cash, usually at a huge loss. A common refrain from investors is that they will "wait until things get better" to restore their allocation to stocks at a level that is consistent with their longer-term investment strategies. The criteria for improvement often implies the investor will hold out for some positive news about the economy, or possibly wait for the market to start rising again in a more sustained manner.

The stock market has typically turned up well before an economic recovery occurs. During the past 14 recessions since 1926, the stock market has typically bottomed about halfway through the recession -- about six months after a recession has begun. The median return thereafter, from the market low point until the end of a recession, has been 25%. Even during the worst of the Great Depression, the stock market bottomed and began to rebound a full nine months prior to the end of the 1933 recession. So historically, the market has looked beyond current conditions and begun to rally while the economic data still indicated contraction and the unemployment rate continued to go up. For the 11 recessions that coincided with stock bear markets since 1926, eight of them experienced the beginning of a bull market well before the end of the recession.

While this strategy may sound reasonable at a time when stock markets continue to decline and investors take comfort from avoiding losses, the flaws are exposed when the bear market comes to an end. As noted, the market tends to rise six months before the economy stops contracting, so waiting for good economic data to hit the headlines inevitably means missing out on the early stages of the rally. Of course, waiting for the stock market to go up as a signal of the end of the bear market also necessarily means an investor has to sit on the sidelines while a new bull market begins.

No one can predict with exact certainty when the current bear market will end. But if historical patterns are a guide, the stock market will turn suddenly upward at some point during the recession, the biggest gains will come in the early months of the rally, and many investors who made a tactical move into cash will miss out on much of the rebound.
