Best Stocks to Buy in August

This calculator finds the best stocks to buy or sell in a given month by analyzing the historical seasonal trends of U.S. stocks. For each stock, it calculates the month it is most likely to be at an annual low (the best month to buy), and which month it is most likely to be at an annual high (the best month to sell). Use the "volatility" dropdown to choose how risky (volatile) the stocks can be. Choosing a lower number will choose lower risk stocks.
