From EWI's short term update (click on any of their ads on this page for more info), last night:
"News weeklies most often put the most pressing events of the day on their covers. By the time a financial trend has been in force so long, or is of such a magnitude that it makes it onto the cover of Time or Newsweek, it usually means that trend is near the point of exhaustion and ready to reverse. Montgomery says that trends can continue for a month or so after the cover appears, but a year later the trend will have appreciably reversed, with about an 80%-85% success rate. Time’s Person of the Year has a particularly good track record of reflecting a trends end.
"One of the more famous Person of the Year financial covers was Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com in 1999. That one occurred almost simultaneous to the stock’s top on December 9, 1999 at 113.00. Amazon declined 95% to a low at 5.51 in October 2001. Andy Grove of Intel was Time’s 1997 Person of the Year and that stock languished through August of the next year before finally taking off. Other financially-related Persons of the Year include Ted Turner (1991), who founded CNN. Turner Broadcasting stock was down over 7% the following year."
