..well not exactly as apparently it is on 2 February 2015 at the unfortunately named Gobblers Knob (is that twinned with Beavers Creek I wonder) in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and it is something to do with the weather, see the link above - is this for real? it was also popularised in a film from 1993 starring Bill Murray in which he got stuck in the same day doing and saying the same thing over and over.
So today in the UK, with that in mind, we have the Chancellors Autumn statement and hence why I say Groundhog day. Is it just me or does it seem like most of the announcements he makes have either been leaked or are just re-announcements of spending plans that were either set earlier in the year or on previous occasions? Take the recent road building announcement - I'm not sure whether any of this was new money?
Anyway for UK investors it is still nevertheless an important event as he can and does sometimes come out with some new and radical changes which can impact on stocks and sectors - remember the Life sector after the last budget for example. So in the spirit of Groundhog day (the film) in the UK see today's window on the Compound Income Advent Calendar below for a look back at some stocks that have been influenced by the Chancellor and his announcements.
