Abstract:     
We find predictable patterns in stock returns. Stocks whose relative returns are high in a given half-hour interval today exhibit similar outperformance in the same half-hour period on subsequent days. The effect is stronger at the beginning and end of the trading day. These results suggest that strategically shifting the timing of trades can significantly reduce execution costs for institutional traders.
