The Tom Brady Factor

Just in time for the Super Bowl

In my presentation, “Secrets of the Temple” I speak about data mining. If you love this stuff as much as I do you will love this stat. We are all aware of how the Super Bowl has, with some accuracy, predicted that year’s market performance. A New England loss would, based on the theory, predict a favorable outcome for the S&P. However, consider this: since Tom Brady began his professional football career in 2000, the market is up 100%. Remove the weeks he didn’t play and just focus on the ones that he did and correlate it with the stock market…and the S&P is up a whopping 425%! Going into next week’s game, we should hope that Tom Brady plays, but doesn’t win!
