Nick Maggiulli (@dollarsanddata) says, “It depends.”  On what, you ask? The answer depends on whether McDonald’s is now selling the McRib.  Forthwith, Mr. Maggiulli answers “is this a good time to buy U.S. stocks?”

You read that correctly.  Stocks gain 0.05 percentage points more when the McRib is being sold.

Disclaimers.  I have not verified (or even looked at) Nick’s analysis.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.  I am not a licensed financial analyst or adviser.  Caveat emptor. And remember what you paid for this advice.
