ABSTRACT
This article reports on the state of stock recoveries in the U.S. as of June 2003. The Standard & Poor's 500 stock index has declined ten percent or more than 13 times since 1926, with declines lasting from as short as two months to as long as 34. Ibbotson Associates measured the length of time it took to recover from each decline's low to the peak before the decline. In six cases, the recovery was shorter than the decline. Three of those recoveries were much shorter than the decline (9 versus 19 months; 5 versus 14 months; 3 versus 20 months). In six cases the recovery was longer than the decline. Three of those recoveries were much longer than the decline (151 versus 34 months; 35 versus 6 months; 18 versus 3 months). In one case the decline and recovery were exactly the same length.
