|Abstract:||The purpose of this thesis is to analyze anomalies in the US stock market. Special
attention is put on Day of the week effect, January effect, and Part of the month
effect. We focus on comparison of companies with low and high capitalization. We
perform an analysis across 6 major industrial sectors. Then, we discuss the findings
with results of past projects and finally, we try to find a speculative investment
strategy. We found out that neither Day of the week effect nor January effect do
not appear in US stock market nowadays. Part of the month effect was the only
anomaly, which was observed in our data.
