Hi Eskrigian,

This give a better definition than I can give.

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/cyclicalstock.asp

I've heard some refer to seasonal stocks as cyclical as well. Some stocks (amusement parks, ice cream...etc) do better in the summer, others (retail for example) do better during the winter holiday season. Housing seems to do better in the Spring.

For an "investment world" type of definition, the link provided sums it up nicely. When they use Auto sector stocks as an example, it includes all that goes with it...steel stocks for example.Everything that is affected by the business cycle.

J.P.
