An extremely rare signal flashed in the stock market on Tuesday, suggesting big gains ahead.
That’s according to Fundstrat’s Tom Lee, who highlighted a surge in the put-to-call ratio despite a jump in the S&P 500.
Since 1997, there have been only three instances when the put-to-call ratio surged above 1.0 on the same day stocks jumped 1%.
An extremely rare contrarian signal flashed in the stock market on Tuesday, and it suggests strong gains ahead, Fundstrat’s Tom Lee said in a Wednesday note.
Lee highlighted that the put-to-call ratio surged above 1.0 on Tuesday, the same day the S&P 500 surged more than 1%. That’s a headscratcher because the put-to-call ratio typically surges on down days in the stock market, not days when there are strong gains.
The put-to-call ratio is a technical indicator that helps measure investor sentiment. A measure of 1 for the put-to-call ratio indicates that the number of buyers of bullish call options is the same as the number of buyers for bearish put options. A measure of above 1 for the ratio signals that there are more put buyers than call buyers, suggesting investors are tilted more bearish than bullish towards the stock market.
“A surge in [the] CBOE put-to-call ratio generally happens on a down day. That is logical: markets trade down, investors seek to hedge, [so they] buy puts,” Lee said. On Tuesday, the put-to-call ratio jumped from 0.64 to 1.35, according to data from YCharts. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 surged nearly 1.4%.
According to Fundstrat, since 1997, there have only been three other instances in which the put-to-call ratio spiked above 1 on the same day the S&P 500 was up more than 1%.
“The forward returns for equities is very good,” Lee said of those three dates.
Those instances include February 1997, November 2008, and March 2020. All three dates saw significant up moves in the stock market over the next few months and year.
According to Lee, the S&P 500 delivered average forward returns of 3.7%, 17.5%, and 35.8% over the next three, six, and twelve months, respectively, with a win ratio of 100% for positive forward six-month and twelve-month returns.
That, combined with strong year-end seasonals, gives Lee confidence that the S&P 500 could surge to 4,500, or about 12% from current levels, by year-end.

With a history of decades-long investing success, billionaire Ken Griffin knows a thing or two about market behavior. Recently, the Citadel Investment Group Founder and CEO offered some of his thoughts on the state of the stock market and where the economy is heading. While Griffin believes inflation has already peaked, he thinks the Fed has yet to truly put the “genie back in the bottle.” He also thinks unemployment is about to rise and expects a recession will likely materialize “sometime in t
Concerns surrounding the growth of big tech do not apply to George Soros. The Federal Reserve's decision to aggressively raise interest rates to fight inflation, which is at a 40-year high, threatens to push the economy into a recession, many analysts say. This inflation, which is particularly impacting consumers, is a huge problem for the technology sector, because tech products and services are the first to suffer from spending cuts.
Among the telecoms is Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ), the second-largest provider behind AT&T. The stock sports an attractive 6.89% dividend yield, which also places it in red-flag territory. Often, when a stock's dividend yield rises higher than 5%, it's seen as a warning sign that the company won't be able to pay its dividend obligations sustainably. Should Verizon shareholders be concerned?
This year, energy companies raked in big profits, allowing those in the sector to pay down debt and reward shareholders with fat dividends.
