(USA Today) – Fall kicks off Wednesday – and it can be a pretty profitable period for investors who are in the right place to rake it in.

There are nine stocks in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, including computer storage firm Seagate Technology (STX), cruiseline Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL) and financial planning firm Ameriprise Financial (AMP), that have been the standout performers during the past five fall seasons. Each of these stocks have beaten the S&P 500 each fall the past five years and delivered 16% or greater average gains during the season, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from S&P Capital IQ.

Investors are headed into this fall understandably nervous. The S&P 500 ended the summer on a rough note and the U.S. market benchmark index is again flirting with a correction, down 9.4% from its all-time high. Additionally, stocks soon are headed into the dreaded month of October which has been the period of some scary declines in the past.

But fall isn’t a season that must be feared. The S&P 500 has actually risen 5.8% on average during the past five falls. And stocks have been positive in each of the past five falls — with one exception — the fall of 2012 when the S&P 500 dropped 2.1%.
