S&P Monthly Total Returns Since 1926

July 15, 2016

For the first time ever, I am making available the S&P 500 Monthly Total Returns going back to 1926.

I originally put this together years ago and have been religiously updating the information each month for the last ten years or so (what a life I have, right?).

My numbers vary slightly from the numbers found in the Ibbotson Year Book. I think the difference is due to rounding. My numbers come from percentages rounded to the nearest .00.

Anyway, I hope AFM readers find this helpful.

  1. The guy from portfoliocharts.com is working on similar data. I thought you might want to connect with him. In his last blog post he mentioned something about that, I believe.

  2. Thanks for the heads up, Jon. I’ll check it out.
