The S&P 500 index SPX, +0.33% is on track to post its best return in the first 50 days off a presidential term since Bill Clinton’s first term in 1993, when the broad-market index rose 4.7%. In fact, it is the best 50-day performance for a GOP commander-in-chief ever and the sixth best performance over that period, based on the data (see table below):
