BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- The final week of September is kicking off on a high note. Year-to-date, the S&P 500 is up more than 16%, making it a stellar year from a historical standpoint. And there are plenty more trading days left in 2012 for investors who've been late to the game.Traditionally, seasonality during the Fall months is great for investors. In fact, over the last decade, September through December has statistically been the best-performing chunk of the year, earning average performance of 6%. Of those months, September is typically the worst performer; if the 4% stocks have rallied so far this month is the worst of it, then it'll be interesting indeed to see how this year ends.
