Cyclical stock

The stock of a company which is sensitive to business cycles and whose 

Performance

 is strongly tied to the overall economy. 

Cyclical

 companies tend to make products or provide services that are in lower 

Demand

 during downturns in the 

Economy

 and higher 

Demand

 during 

Upswing

. Examples include the automobile, steel, and housing industries. The stock price of a 

Cyclical

 company will often rise just before an 

Economic

 upturn begins, and fall just before a 

Downturn

 begins. Investors in 

Cyclical

 stocks try to make the largest gains by buying the stock at the 

Bottom

 of a business cycle, just before a 

Turnaround

 begins. opposite of 

Defensive stock
