Month of SPX High of the Year

I was curious what month the high of the year occurred, and if a year to date high occurred in a given month, how often did it get eclipsed in a later month? The second column is the count of the number of years the SPX index (based on Yahoo! data – 1951 – 2012) that had that month as achieving the high of the year. The third column is the number of years where there was a higher high in a subsequent month given that month had a year to date high.

Since August 2013 had a year to date high, then it is fairly likely there will be a higher high later this year.
