Good afternoon fellow degenerates, as I sat in the movie theatre last Sunday watching cars in space in F9 I couldn’t help but notice the sheer amount of times Dom and the other characters constantly go on about “Family” as they always tend to do at least in the past few movies. Once I got home I realized there absolutely had to be a correlation between how many times family was mentioned in the films and the S&P 500 performance. So naturally I did some research on the S&P 500 return 3 months after each movie was released. The results are below:
**The Fast and Furious (2001)**
* 2 Family Mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return -260 points
**2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)**
* 0 Family Mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return +34 points
**The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift (2006)**
* 1 family mention
* S&P 500 3 month return +68 points
**Fast Furious (2009)**
* 1 family mention
* S&P 500 3 month return +194 points
**Fast Five (2011)**
* 5 family mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return -11 points
**Fast and Furious Six (2013)**
* 10 family mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return +13 points
**Fast & Furious 7 (2015)**
* 7 family mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return -4 points
**Fast and Furious 8 (2017)**
* 14 mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return +98 points
**Fast and Furious 9 (2021)**
* 5+ family mentions
* S&P 500 3 month return ?????
Looking at these results we can see that the movies that had 1 or less family mentions the S&P vastly outperformed movies who had multiple mentions following 3 months after release. I was actually shocked to see how much better the 1 or less family mentioned movies performed. Looking back at how I presented the information it would have been better to show percent change instead of point change but I’m feeling lazy right now just now the percent change is a lot larger in the pre 2010 years.
**Moving Forward:** As I was in the movies this weekend researching F9 I counted easily 5 family mentions perhaps a lot more I lost count. Their is no official count out yet but it is definitively bigger then 5. With this information in mind the next 3 months of the S&P will historically be very negative.
This is not financial advice.
